Book Club

Discuss books with fellow lit lovers in the community! We meet the second Thursday of every month at 1:30pm at the Argenta Library. The library can place a hold on the monthly selections for you if you wish. We also try to keep a few spare copies at each circulation desk.

Check out our top-rated books!

We’re always open to new members – join at any time! If you can’t make it in person to the book club discussion, click here to rate this month’s book!

September 2022 Selection

Leave The World Behind

by Rumaan Alam

Discussion: Thursday, September 8th, 2022 at 1:30 pm.

Amanda and Clay head to a remote corner of Long Island expecting a vacation: a quiet reprieve from life in New York City, quality time with their teenage son and daughter, and a taste of the good life in the luxurious home they’ve rented for the week. The houseowners, Ruth and G. H., arrive in the middle of the night in a panic. They say a sudden blackout has swept the city: the TV and internet are down, and no cell phone service. Is the vacation home, isolated from civilization, a safe place for their families? And are they safe from one other?
