Noontime Book Discussion

  • This event has passed.

Amherst Books Noontime Book Conversation will feature a discussion of Herman Melville’s Billy Budd. Meeting ordinarily on the second Tuesday of every month from 12:10pm until 1:00pm, the group has no fixed members (although quite a few regulars). Readers are urged to nominate a book to be read, especially if they are willing to lead the discussion. We focus on fiction & drama with occasional foray into the graphic novel. We limit the length of our selections to about 200 pages, although this is a guideline rather than a fixed rule. We believe in the joy of re-reading, so some of our selections are works that many have already read at least once. The noontime book group is under the general oversi ght of Michael Greenebaum (mlgreenebaum33@gmail.com) who selects the books & leads the discussions. He is happy to hear from those with ideas or questions. Amherst Books offers a 10% discount on the month’s book for those who plan to join the group.

(November’s discussion will meet on Tuesday the 12th. November’s choice will be selected work by Flannery O’Connor.)
