Happy New Year from Book Club!

We hope one of your resolutions this year is to make it to more Book Club meetings. Please don’t feel that you shouldn’t attend if you haven’t finished (or even started) the book—Book Club is mainly an opportunity for old and new friends to get together and chat and snack. All are welcome—we would love to have some new members join our group.

We hold most meetings in person but also have a Zoom option if you can’t attend. Please contact Debbie at if you have any interest in hosting a meeting. We typically meet on the third Wednesday of the month.

The Holliston Public Library reserves several copies of each book for us—they can be found (typically about a month ahead of each meeting) on the shelves along the windows on the right as you enter the library.

On Wednesday, January 17, at 7:30 pm, we will meet to discuss The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V. E. Schwab (see description below). Our February book will be The World According to Garp, by John Irving. This is the One Book One Holliston choice (we will be reading the book chosen as the town-wide read; there will be other non-HNN events related to the book held at the library).

France, 1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets. Thus begins the extraordinary life of Addie LaRue, and a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to leave her mark on the world. But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore and he remembers her name.
