Easttown Library's Afternoon Book Club Celebrates its 20th Anniversary
In the fall of 1996, one of the library's long-time customers asked if we would start a book club. And so began the Afternoon Book Club. It started with 10 members, and many of them traveled from nearby Devon Manor to discuss the monthly selection. The first book discussed was John Hersey's A Bell for Adano. The most recent book the now 20-year old group read was David McCullough's The Wright Brothers. Two hundred and forty-two books later, the Afternoon Book Club is still going strong! If you have a free afternoon, stop by on the first Tuesday of each month at 1:00 p.m. Visitors are always welcome. The next title the Afternoon Book Club is reading is always posted on the bulletin board in the lobby of the library.
