The Feckin’ Book Club
The October Spotlight Group is The Feckin’ Book Club!
The Feckin’ Book Club was started in March of 2008. The first book they read was Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt. He used the word “feckin’” so often in the book that they thought it would be a perfect title for the group!
This club currently has 11 members that range in age from 32 to 79. Although people have come and gone, nine of the original members remain—and some have near-perfect attendance!
The Summer Reading Group
The September Spotlight Group is The Summer Reading Group!
The Summer Reading Group meets the third Thursday of each month at the Elsie Quirk Public Library in Englewood, Florida.
The Summer Reading Group has met for four summers. They read one novel a month (June-September) for the discussion. The Sarasota Library System encourages adults to participate in Summer Reading by asking participants to fill out an activity log and submit book reviews for a chance to win various prizes throughout the summer.
The August Spotlight Group is The Night-en-gals!
The Night-en-gals are a group of 8 nurses/friends that began a book club in January 2001 in Rochester, NY. They all worked together at the hospital and enjoyed talking about all the good books they had read. As of today, they’ve read over 200 books, have no plans to disband the group anytime soon, and look forward to new and exciting selections to choose from.
Four of The Night-en-gals are now retired while the other four continue to work in a nursing capacity.
