The Crozet Library Monday Night Book Group recently announced its schedule of reading selections for the upcoming year. Books are nominated and voted on by members, then assigned to months. The Book Group meets the first Monday of each month, September through July, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
JMRL public library system owns at least three copies of each of these titles. The public is invited to join the discussions. The club is currently using a hybrid model of meeting both in person at the library as well as virtually on Zoom. Just show up at the in-person meeting, or email [email protected] for the Zoom link. On Monday, July 11, the selection is The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett.
