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.
