Book Discussion Group

The Black Earth Public Library has a very active book discussion group.  We meet almost monthly, but most typically every five or six weeks.  The library orders in copies of the titles that are selected by the members.  Members take turns leading the book discussion as well as selecting the titles to be read.

The current selection is The Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother by Amy Chua.
