There is a discussion group for almost everyone at Lancaster Public Library, covering the world of books and film, and some groups are open to any genre. Members have a say in what titles are chosen, so drop in and join in the discussion.
Monthly Book Discussion Group (led by Craig Haggit)
2nd Thursday of each month in the Windolph Room
If you like reading a wide variety of literature (fiction and nonfiction), this is the group for you! Check out the reading list for 2012 and 2013 and drop in if you see a book you like. One of the criteria for selection is that the public libraries have a lot of copies, so you shouldn’t have to buy your own unless you really want to.
History Book Club (led by Erik Berthoud)
1st Wednesday of each month in the Windolph Room
Anything historical is fair game in this special interest monthly book club, from the mists of ancient times to the modern era. With a Master’s degree in Medieval Studies, Erik Berthoud is the perfect host for this active book club.
Civil War Discussion Group (leader varies)
3rd Wednesday of each month in the Windolph Room
For the next couple of years the nation marks the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War. Each month we discuss a book, either fiction or non-fiction, that covers some aspect of the Civil War. Expect a thoughtful and in-depth discussion. Many of these discussions will be led by Drs. Tamara Goeglein and Louise Stevenson of Franklin & Marshall College, while others will be led by various members of the group.
Film Discussion Group (led by Sherri Miller)
See Calendar for 2012 dates. Last Thursday of the month in 2013.
Join us at the library to talk about great movies. The Film Discussion Group is for movie enthusiasts that meet monthly on the last Thursday afternoon to watch and discuss a film. The group talks about movie plots and characters and how cinema sends messages to viewers. Films selected will include popular blockbusters, timeless classics, thought-provoking dramas and more.
