I love a good book! A good book transports you, soothes you, fires you up and makes you laugh and cry. You can often "hear me" reading a book, as I have a tendency to talk back to the main characters, or giggle or yell - whichever is appropriate to the situation. Reading is a source of great joy for me! Of course, another great joy of mine is talking!! So when I joined my first book club, I realized I could have two of my favorite things at the same time. I could read and then talk about the book I had just read.
A book club is a collection of readers who participate in the regular discussion of books. It doesn't matter what you read, how often you meet or who is in the group. All that matters is that you read, get together and then discuss. Book clubs meet for breakfast, lunch, dinner and all times in between. They can be with life-long friends, neighbors, co-workers or strangers who become friends.
The Huntsville Library Foundation wants to support our local book clubs. The Foundation is starting a registry of all books clubs in Madison County and the surrounding areas to help keep you up to date on literary news and events of interest at the Library. Your information will not be shared with anyone outside the Foundation. Plus.... there's a prize involved! All book clubs that register with the Foundation prior to September 1st will be entered into a drawing to win dinner in a private home for up to 12 for a book club meeting.** So click on the tab marked "Book Club Registry" and sign up!
This year marks a milestone for the Huntsville Library Foundation's annual Vive le Livre! On November 3rd, Vive is turning 25! The HLF is proud to announce best-selling author and attorney, Scott Turow as our featured guest for this very special occasion! Read more »
I admit it! I love the show CSI: New York. It is a group of "forensic investigators who use high-tech science to follow the evidence and solve crimes in the big apple." Plus, the actors are cute and there's a strong Southern woman as one of the main characters! Now, I have the chance to learn what really happens behind the scenes in forensic science and investigation from the bestselling author Jefferson Bass, the writing team of Dr. Bill Bass and Jon Jefferson.
