October’s Spotlight is The Loose Ladies Club!
Our group is called Loose Ladies. There are 7 women in the group and we take turns hosting a lunch, selecting a book and leading the discussion. Our group has met now for 3 years. We read classics, mysteries, bestsellers and the recommendations from Reading Group Choices which is an invaluable tool.
September’s Spotlight is The Grant Book Club!
The Grant Book Club began meeting in the library just 3 years ago. We grew from a beginning of 6 to the 10 regulars we are today. Our group of ladies is multi-generational bringing a wealth of experiences and reading choices to the table.

We were more than pleased to recommend Belle Boggs’ nonfiction book, The Art of Waiting: On Fertility, Medicine, and Motherhood, in Reading Group Choices 2017 so we were excited to find out that Belle would be speaking at the Decatur Book Festival where RGC had a booth.
RGC Group’s September Book is: Enchanted Islands by Allison Amend
Our September book was Allison Amend’s, Enchanted Islands. We enjoyed following Frances to Chicago, Nebraska, San Francisco, and of course the Galapagos Islands, and we found it especially fitting for the end of the summer.
Of course Reading Group Choices has its very own group! We meet monthly, and we will post each month’s book choice and a description of our discussion on Bookmark. You are welcome to follow along with your group, or use it as another recommendation source for your own personal reading!
