Book Discussion Group
Twice a year (spring and fall) the Onondaga Ski Club book discussion group meets at a member's home to discuss a selected book and then enjoy a group pot-luck dinner together. Generally 25 or more members attend these discussions.
Currently, Dianne Emmick is the group leader. She selects a book, provides information about securing copies of the book, and then establishes the meeting location. Members read the book and come to the meeting prepared to discuss topics designed to stimulate dialogue and interest.
Also, if you want to provide Dianne with book selections and/or dialogue with other members about the present book, go to the Book Group Forum.
CURRENT SELECTION -- FALL 2017
The next book for the OSC Book Discussion group will be This Is How It Always Is by Laurie Frankel.
Location and host for the book discussion will be Kathleen Joy who lives at 250 Long Road, Tully. People are asked to RSVP so she can get a count at 315-374-3500 or at email@example.com . Date and time are Thursday, November 30, 5:30-6:45 for dish-to-pass and 6:45 - 8 for book discussion.
This is a novel about family with themes of gender identity, raising boys, parenting, family decisions, how a decision affects members of a family, keeping family secrets.
The book received 4.5 stars on Amazon.com. Some comments include “It made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me think,” “Controversial but beautifully written,” “One of the finest, most tender novels I have ever read,” “Brave, complicated, occasionally horrifying and frequently very funny.”
We are always looking for people willing to host a discussion and dish-to-pass. If you are interested in hosting a future event, please contact Carol at firstname.lastname@example.org.
