Adult Book Discussion

BOOK DISCUSSION GROUP  -  DATES UPDATED TO REFLECT 2020/2021 SCHEDULE

On the first Thursday of every month, the Book Bin hosts a group discussion led by Sheila Whalen.  The group meets at the Book Bin with the discussion beginning promptly at 7:00 pm and ending at 8:00 pm.  Members of the group are encouraged to read the book for a more animated discussion; however, we invite you to participate even if you have not read the selection.  The books for the upcoming months are listed below.  All members of the discussion group are given a 20% discount on the book we've selected. (When we begin meeting in person again, the store will remain open after each discussion in case you wish to purchase the following month's selection.)

 

We were forced to cancel our 2020 discussion dates due to the pandemic, but we are returning to the intended list of books starting with our April selection. Starting April 1, 2021, we will begin gathering over Zoom to discuss these titles; as the weather improves in Northbrook, maybe we'll begin meeting outside the store. As things progress, so will our plans to meet in person. A Zoom meeting is set up for the first Thursday of each month, and we can share this meeting information with you.

 

Please email us at bookbinnorthbrook@gmail.com if you need the Zoom meeting information.
