The Garden City Public Library is adding seven new Book Club in a Bag titles to its collection. The titles include At the Water’s Edge, by Sara Gruen; Dead Wake, by Erik Larson; Every Fifteen Minutes, by Lisa Scottoline (2 bags); Inside the O’Briens, by Lisa Genova; The Little Paris Bookshop, by Nina George; The Museum of Extraordinary Things, by Alice Hoffman (2 bags); Orient, by Christopher Bollen (2 bags); Our Souls at Night, by Kent Haruf; The Truth According to Us, by Annie Barrows; and a second bag with The Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins. The new Book Club in a Bag titles are ready to be reserved and borrowed.
If you’ve always wanted to start a book club or if your existing book club is looking for an easier way to select books, then the Library’s Book Club in a Bag may be just what you need.
Each canvas tote bag checks out for six weeks and contains 10 copies of a discussible title, usually a large type, audio material, and an information package with a summary, book reviews, biographical information, discussion questions, an author interview, and suggestions for further reading. The bag also includes a sign-up sheet for the leader to keep track of who has which book.
