The Book Club recently met at Eudora Brewing Company for a casual conversation about books they’re reading and to share recommendations with others. If you’re looking for a summer read and were not able to make it to the discussion, below are a few of the titles mentioned by fellow clubbers. We’ve linked them to our catalog or the SearchOhio catalog to make it easy for you to request them.

We’re also happy to share that registration is now available for our 2023-2024 Book Club discussions. Registration is not required but is encouraged. We’ll kick-off the year on September 21, 2023 with The Summers, by Ronya Othman, translated by Gary Schmidt (translator Dr. Gary Schmidt, Dean of the College of Liberal Arts, will be attending).
