TUESDAY AFTERNOON BOOK CLUB
The Tuesday Afternoon Book Club (wearing masks and social distancing) met this month to discuss books by the author Maeve Binchy. Book Club members had read several of her books. Maeve Binchy is an Irish author with many of her books set in Dublin, Ireland. She died in 20212 ending a successful career as a fiction writer. Her novels were characterized by a sympathetic and often humorous portrayal of small-town life in Ireland and surprise endings. The books could relate to small town living most anywhere. Book Club members discussed her skill at developing characters. “Circle of Friends” and Evening Class” were two of her books read and enjoyed by Book Club members. Some who read other books by Binchy felt it was difficult to tie all her characters together in the story. As usual, within a group, there were differing opinions, however all agreed they enjoy reading a variety of authors.
There are many books with a variety of authors and styles at the LeRoy Public Library. You will be able to find one to match your interests. Order online or call the library to set up an appointment to come in and browse. Curb-side pickup is also available. Call Rhonda Barnes at the library for information.
