Book Discussions

Page Turners: Book Discussion Group

Main (Oakland)

Join us for lively discussions of contemporary fiction, non-fiction and other notable books! All are welcome. Discussions are free and open to the public. No registration is necessary. We will usually have copies of the current month’s book available for you to check out at the Ask a Librarian desk on the First Floor.

Discussions are held on the third Thursday of the month from 1 to 2 p.m. and again from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Graphic Novels Room on the First Floor of the Main Library.

February’s book selection is Washington Black by Esi Edugyan. — Unexpectedly chosen to be a family manservant, an 11-year-old Barbados sugar-plantation slave is initiated into a world of technology and dignity before a devastating betrayal propels him throughout the world in search of his true self.

Participants in this Black History month’s discussion will be eligible to win a pair of tickets for the Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures Ten Evenings lecture with Esi Edugyan on March 9. For more information about the lecture series, go to
