Book Mill Reading Group

The Book Mill, Maynard Library’s book discussion group for adults, first met in October 1999 and rated The Bird Artist by Howard Norman a 6.3 out of 10! While the Book Mill no longer rates the books discussed, it continues to meet monthly from January through June, and from August through November, typically on the last Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. Over the years, the Book Mill has evolved into a thoughtful group with particular interest in reading about different cultures and creating reading lists that mix contemporary fiction, classics, and, occasionally, nonfiction. Only books that are available through the Minuteman Library Network or in paperback are included in each year’s reading schedule. Meetings last under an hour and a half, although at times they spill over enthusiastically. Any reader who enjoys reading with a questioning mind, entertaining diverse perspectives, and sharing their thoughts is welcome to join us for one or many Book Mill meetings.
