Possible Selections for November – March discussions


to get you thinking about what you would like to read, I am posting some possible choices.  We can continue to read by subject/topic or we mentioned possibly reading by geography.  Here are some possibilities for each of these.


Biographies    Science    Science Fiction    War    Exploration/Adventure    Sports    Classics    Nature    Award Winners    Politics    Health/Medicine    Families


Great Britain    Canada    Africa    Eastern Europe    Scandinavia    Middle East    South America    China    Japan    Russia    France    Germany

Open to other possibilities on categories or on specific choices.  How about some feedback?  I would remind you that given the readership of this blog, there is a high degree of likelihood that your suggestion will be chosen.

It’s nearly the middle of September – can October be far behind?

We’ll be ramping Bagels and Books up again – this time the 4th Saturday of each month – beginning on Oct 26 when we will be talking about travel books.  But I am still reading – assume you are too.

Enjoyed an Advance Readers Copy of Julia Spencer Fleming’s new in the series – Through the Evil Days and Tamarack County by William Kent Krueger – both favorite mystery writers of mine.  Also enjoyed The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty. Getting ready for a discussion of The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson – important and painful to read book – and I am working my way through the 700 pages of The Woman Who Lost Her Soul by Bob Shacochis.

What’s on your nightstand?


Members of the Friends of the Maynard Library are permitted to attend the dress rehearsal of each of the ACME Theater productions for the small fee of $5 which goes to the Friends.  Their first production opens next week so we will be at the dress rehearsal on Wednesday, Sept 11.  Not a member yet?  You can join at the door.  The first play is Skin Flick – photo of the set below which looks lovely.  Hope to see you there.  Should be in your seat by 7:45.
