"A country's literature is a crystal ball into which its people may look to find some foretaste of their future."
- - Robertson Davies
The Friends sponsors Page Turners, a book club focused on general interest reading, fiction and nonfiction. The participants suggest titles and take turns leading the discussion. It has been meeting monthly since 2006, on the 2nd Monday, 3:00-4:30 pm, in the Library Meeting Room. Thus far, they have read and enthusiastically discussed the books listed below. For their current and future readings, see below also.
Feel free to email your Book Club questions, comments, or ideas – to our Book Club Chair at bookclubs@ETLlibraryFriends.org .
