Library launches book group
For the Valley’s reading lovers, a new book discussion group is being launched at the Sonoma Valley Regional Library beginning on Thursday, Feb. 28, at 2 p.m.
Running for five months, the discussions will feature a range of titles, from fiction to mystery to a memoir of growing up in Zimbabwe. The first title, “The Art of Fielding” by Chad Harbach, is a book of fiction which “… manages to rework the well-worn, much-allegorized subject of baseball and make us see it afresh …” according to the author.
A copy of the book can be picked up the month prior to discussion at the library’s information desk.
Books are selected from a pool of titles purchased by the Sonoma County Public Library Foundation. Other titles in the spring reading series are: “The Art of Racing in the Rain,” by Garth Stein; “Murder in the Rue de Paradis,” by Cara Black; “Geography of Bliss,” by Eric Weiner; and “Don’t Let’s go to the Dogs Tonight,” by Alexandra Fuller.
All book discussions will be held on the fourth Thursday of the month at 2 p.m. in the library at 755 W. Napa St., Sonoma. Reservations are not required, and discussions are free and open to all. More information is available on the library’s website at sonomalibrary.org/bookgroup/Sonoma_spring.html.
