True Writ is Beebe Library’s nonfiction book discussion group. We read across all subjects and genres of nonfiction, from biographies to travelogues and everything in between – well, except for religious and political books. As Linus once said in the 1961 comic strip Peanuts, “There are three things I have learned never to discuss with people…religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin.”  Some months will assign a single title for discussion, other times there will be a common  theme with a list of suggested books from which participants can choose.

Rules and guidelines for the book discussion group can be found here.

Join us on the second Monday evening of everything month (except July and August) at 7:00 pm in the Blake Gallery.

Upcoming titles:

November 13th meeting – The theme is “nature” and readers have a choice of two books (or read both, they’re each only about 250 pages!)

The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate: Discoveries from a Secret World by Peter Wohlleben


The Nature Fix: Why Nature Makes Us Happier, Healthier and More Creative by Florence Williams

Copies should be available of both at the Circulation Desk or email group leader Jackie Powers ( to request one or both.
