Spring Titles for Library Book Club

Here are the titles and dates for our spring meetings. All are welcome and there is no judgement if one doesn’t finish the book…but be aware there may be spoilers! If you need any assistance with ordering a copy through the Library’s Interlibrary Loan service or the Commonwealth Catalog, please contact kmofford@umassd.edu.

  • Wednesday, February 21 at Noon:  The Once and Future Witches, by Alix E. Harrow (this title is a bit longer (516 pages), so order it early).
  • Tuesday, April 16 at 12:30: Tea with the Black Dragon, by R.A. MacAvoy.

Our meeting is hybrid, so if you would like to come in person, we will be in Library 240 and if you would like to join by Zoom, please contact kmofford@umassd.edu.
