On Nov. 30 at 6:30pm, we at the Georgetown Peabody Library are holding our own version of the Human Books event. (Based on the Human Library http://humanlibrary.org/) “Books” are people who have volunteered to share their stories while challenging stereotypes. Instead of reading books, people come to ask questions and kick start discussion with our “books.” Some topics of discussion may relate to: mental illness (anxiety, bipolar), family makeup (single parent, adoptive parent) or religion (Muslim, Christianity) etc. No registration is required. Drop in any time between 6:30 pm and 7:30 pm.
The Book club meets the Last Tuesday of every month from 3 to 4pm unless otherwise noted. The group is open to students in grade 7 to 12. We usually discuss one or two books but discussion is not limited to the listed readings. Refreshments are also provided as well as time and material to make some artistic scribbles. The book club will not be held if local schools or library is closed due to weather. Those interested in participating will have to get their own copy of Bitterblue.
The Group is run by library staff member Michael Williams. If you have any questions you may email him or call him at 978 352 5728.
