Peekskill’s Field Library is inviting residents of Peekskill and Cortlandt to join its “Field Notes Book Club.”
The group will meet once a month on Saturdays at the library form 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., for informal discussions with Eleanor Kuhns, a retired library director from Finkelstein Memorial Library in Spring Valley. The program is free though registration is required and limited to 20 people.
The schedule for this season starts Jan. 16 and will continue on Feb. 20, March 13, April 17 and May 15. The club will focus on five titles that explore women’s issues including relationships and gender challenges. The following books will be discussed: “Mercy” by Toni Morrison; “Handle with Care” by Jodi Picoult; “The Year of the Flood” by Margaret Atwood; “A Change in Altitude” by Anita Shreve and “The Plague of the Doves” by Louise Erdrich. Said Kuhns:
My approach is that book clubs are a wonderful chance for shared exploration, an enhanced reading experience, and stimulating discussion. Reading literature together gives us insight into the mysterious and complex human experience.
For more information or to register call The Field Library at 914-737-0010. The library is located at 4 Nelson Ave., Peekskill.
