Authors to discuss their book about book clubs May 14

Local authors Suzanne Colley and Kathleen Marsan will be at the Plainville Public Library, 56 East Main St., Plainville on Thursday, May 14 at 7 p.m. to discuss their recently published book, “Beyond the Book: How to Start or Jumpstart a Book Club”.

For more than a decade, their energetic club has met regularly for casual or more elaborate themed meetings, taken road trips, and (carefully) grown by adding new members who embrace the spirit of reading with friends. “Whenever we talk about the fun and friendship we share through our book club, people ask how they can start one of their own, or share woes that their book club fell apart,” the authors explained.

Colley and Marsan’s book club journey has included opportunities to read and volunteer within the community, meet up with favorite authors, and take countless steps to spread their love of books. This guide details how readers can make that happen in their own club, too. The book includes a bonus chapter on starting a book club for children and young adults.
