Welcome to the new Rare Reads book group page. Just like the old blog, this page will feature polls, news and a place to discuss! Keep checking for updates and add as a new bookmark/favorite on your browser.
Rare Reads is a book group that discusses unusual and interesting popular fiction (and sometimes nonfiction) at Topsham Public Library. We meet on the third Tuesday of every month at 6pm. Just attend whichever is more convenient to you. Can’t make it? Join the discussion here!
After that, our next meeting is Tuesday, February 20 and we will be discussing The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie. New members always welcome!
