Book Club Finishes the Year with Virtual Discussion and Recommended Summer Reads

Book cover

The Libraries Book Club, sponsored by the Friends of the Libraries, Alumni Association, and Wright State Retirees Association, finished up its last book discussion remotely, on Zoom. The discussion was held on April 28th. Our book club program had us reading four titles this year, the last one by local author Jess Montgomery titled, The Widows. Due to the COVID-19 related campus closures, we had to cancel our last meeting, which Jess Montgomery was planning to attend. The group instead discussed titles they had read during the quarantine and made recommendations for summer reading. Titles recommended by the group include:

  • The Overstory by Richard Powers
  • The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson
  • The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes
  • Where the Wind Leads by Vinh Chung
  • Trinity Sight by Jennifer Givhan
  • Truth by Omission by Daniel Beamish
  • Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and Birth of the FBI by David Grann
  • The End of October by Lawrence Wright
  • The Storyteller by Jodi Piccoult
  • The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates

The next book club discussion, led by Dr. Sarah Twill, will be Tuesday, June 9th at 5:30 p.m.  via WebEx. The group will discuss Overstory by Richard Powers. Connection information will be posted here a couple of days prior to the discussion. Contact Sue Polanka, University Librarian, for more information.
