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 2018
The discussion book will be Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng (pronounced Ing.)
The novel is set in Shaker Heights, Ohio. It deals with the lifestyles of both the long established affluent residents of this structured community, and the struggling first-generation immigrant population. Many other issues such as abortion, adoption, parenting, secrets, art, and more are woven into this complex story.
Our host for this discussion is Elizabeth Chapman
Address: 250 Oarlock Circle, Erie Village

Although there are over 100 copies in our library system. There are several holds on the book, so you need to get your name on the library hold list as soon as possible. For those of you who like to read online, there are ebooks of the title at EBay for very reasonable prices, sometimes as low as $1.50.. I have used these vendors and have successfully downloaded books to my computer, tablet, or Kindle. Here is the link. Check it out:
