Message From the Director: Author Susan Wiggs Visits Our Book Club

“Ah, how good it is to be among people who are reading.”

– Rainer Maria Rilke

Livingston Library Community, 

There is something magical about connecting readers with their next favorite book, but connecting readers with other readers is extraordinary. The Livingston Public Library is pleased to offer book clubs that do just that- bring books and readers together. 

We’re excited to announce our upcoming Bookish Vibes book club meeting on Thursday, May 6th at 7pm, where we will be reading The Lost and Found Bookshop by Susan Wiggs. During this book club readers will discuss the book, along with their own bookish thoughts about the writing, act of reading, and more. The best part is that Susan Wiggs will also be joining us! That’s right! You’ll be able to ask Wiggs anything you want about her book, writing process, and reading habits. **Readers are not required to read the selected title, and are encouraged to come ready to discuss any title by Wiggs or anything bookish!

The Livingston Public Library offers a plethora of other book cubs for various reading interests. If you’re interested in more ways to connect with readers and books consider joining:

  • X-treme Readers: Children in grades 4-5 will enjoy our X-treme Readers book club!
