Book Discussion Group

The Kearny Public Library welcomes new members to join our monthly Book Discussion Group, which normally meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 6:30 PM on the lower level of the Main Library, located at 318 Kearny Ave.

The KPL Book Club plans on continuing the success it has been building over the last few years with moderator Dorothy Meissner and a core of dynamic, dedicated members. Please note that the group will not be meeting in July, August or December.

While they are always open to new members, they are also actively seeking local authors who might be interested in doing book talks. If you are an interested local author, please contact the library.

The next meeting of the Book Discussion Group will be held on Wednesday, March 8 to discuss Vinegar Hill , award-winning author A. Manette Mansay's historical family saga set in 1972 Wisconsin. If anyone is interested in joining in, copies of each book are available at the Main Library, while supplies last. Just ask at the front desk.
