Thu, Jul 27, 2017 -- Afternoon Book Discussion at 4:00 PM

The Afternoon Book Discussion Group of the Dighton Public Library is discussing The Rumor by Elin Hilderbrand.

From Booklist: In this enjoyable comedy of manners, Hilderbrand returns to Nantucket, the setting of her 14 previous novels. Madeline, a best-selling author, is happily married to Trevor. Her best friend, Grace, is married to successful real-estate developer Eddie and lives in a much grander house with extensive grounds. Grace’s passion for gardening leads her to hire and carry on with Benton Coe, a hunky landscape architect. At the same time, Madeline is struggling to write the second novel in a two-book deal. She can’t afford to return her advance, so, desperate to get over her writer’s block, she submits to her publisher the story of Grace’s affair, very thinly disguised. Eddie, meanwhile, resorts to questionable measures to shore up his precarious finances, while Madeline’s son, Brick, and Grace’s twin daughters, Allegra (the cool one) and Hope (the smart one), negotiate their own teen hell of envy and gossip. Hilderbrand does her usual expert job of evoking the Nantucket setting and portraying flawed but likable characters, and the value of family and friendship is affirmed at the end. -- Quinn, Mary Ellen (Reviewed 06-01-2015) (Booklist, vol 111, number 19, p45)The rumor

All are invited to join the discussion. This book group usually meets on the last Thursday of each month at 4:00. Copies of the book are available, in advance, at the library.

Tue, Aug 1, 2017 -- Book Group at 6:00 PM

Dighton Middle School 6th grade students are invited to attend this book group instead of completing the written assignment for summer reading.

Given his lifetime assignment at the Ceremony of Twelve, Jonas becomes the receiver of memories shared by only one other in his community and discovers the terrible truth about the society in which he lives.
Students will be expected to discuss the plot, how the characters changed during the story, how the story might've been improved and give a general opinion of the book. If you have a chance, watch the movie so we can do a comparison, and decide which was better.
