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.

We’re moving to a new day and time!  Starting in January, join us on the second Monday evening of everything month at 7:00 pm in the Blake Gallery.

Upcoming titles:

March 13th  – Speaking American: A History of English in the United States by Richard Bailey

April 10th – River of Doubt: Theodore Roosevelt’s Darkest Journey by Candice Millard

May 8th – Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End by Atul Gawande
