Book Clubs

Cancelation Update

Due to coronavirus concerns, the library system cancelled all programming and meeting room use for March 14-22, 2020, and the library buildings have closed March 17 (at 3 PM) through March 31, so book club meetings scheduled during those dates have been cancelled. Some book club meetings may be rescheduled. Contact Jessica about Full STEAM Ahead and Coming to America.

Yiddish Book Center’s “Coming to America” Reading Group – *at Ringer Library*

The Yiddish Book Center’s “Coming to America” Reading Group will meet on the third Thursday of the month, from February 2020 to April 2020, and there will be one meeting in June. This reading and discussion program is designed to engage teens and adults in thinking about immigrants’ experiences encountering America. Using Yiddish literature as a portal, the program will feature Yiddish literature in translation that explores questions of identity, assimilation, language, cuisine, and generational change, presenting American identity as an ongoing conversation, a give-and-take between insiders and outsiders, and will compare these works written in the early 20th century to works by contemporary immigrant writers. We received a grant from the Yiddish Book Center that provided multiple copies of the book club titles. For more information, email Jessica at jonesj@bryantx.gov. The first meeting was on Thursday, February 20, 2020. The March 2020 meeting was cancelled, and it will be rescheduled. Contact Jessica for more information about rescheduling the March book discussion.
