Readers Choice Book Club

Rural Retreat Public Library

Every third Tuesday of each month, let’s make some time for coffee and conversations.

The Readers Choice Book Club is perfect for those who don’t like to be told what to do. There are no assigned books or specific authors to read each month. YOU choose what YOU get to read. Then let us know what you thought of the book over refreshments. Did you like it? Hate it? Love it? We want to know! It’s your chance to motivate others to read your favorite books and in turn get inspired by what others have to say about their favorite books.

Wednesday Book Club

Wythe County Public Library

A book club for those who read the best of the best.
The librarians at WCPL have put together a fantastic reading list that is full of New York Times best-selling authors, and includes a Pulitzer Prize winner! Stories and themes cover a wide spectrum of reading preferences. From historical fiction in Post-Revolutionary Russia to a modern-day love story in South America. From a coming-of-age story in 1960’s American South to a fight for freedom in Antebellum South.

Every month, Wednesday Book Club members read a different New York Times Bestselling novel from the last 2 years (listed below) and discuss it at the meetings (every 3rd Wednesday of the month at 10am at Wythe County Public Library). And for added fun, the library will show a movie after the discussion.
