With so many cancellations lately, it was wonderful that book club successfully held our April meeting. Eleven people joined in on Zoom to enjoy catching up with other members and discussion of our past two books, Where the Crawdads Sing, and A Gentleman in Moscow. Both titles got a thumbs up by participants, so if you are looking for a good read, check them out! Many thanks go to Cindy for coordination and hosting our first Zoom meeting.
Please save the date for our next virtual Book Club meeting on Tuesday, May 19 at 7:30pm when we will again meet up, catch up, and discuss this month’s book, Olive, Again, by Elizabeth Strout. Registration will be required, so please check out our Facebook page, and/or the reminder email that is sent out a day or two before the meeting.
Libraries remain closed, yet digital access to collections is readily available. Allow extra time to request titles as there may be a wait. Check out hollistonlibrary.org for instructions on using the Minuteman network to borrow digital and audio versions. While there, find instructions for expanding your online borrowing options by creating a Boston Public Library account.
"Olive Kitteridge has returned, as indomitable as ever, this time as a person getting older, navigating her next decade as she comes to terms with the changes--sometimes welcome, sometimes not--in her own life. Here is Olive, strangely content in her second marriage, still in an evolving relationship with her son and his family, encountering a cast of memorable characters in the seaside town of Crosby, Maine. Whether it's a young girl coming to terms with the loss of her father, a young woman about to give birth at a baby shower, or a nurse who confesses a secret high school crush, the irascible Olive improbably touches the lives of others."--Provided by publisher.
