Eleanor Murphy Book Club

"Discussing the book is important, but laughing is often our goal."

We've read a few nonfiction books, but mostly we focus on favorite authors and/or books of fiction. Mysteries seem to pop up as suggestions more than other genre. We've been meeting since July of 2004, and we'd love to have more members!

Meets the first Tuesday of the month at 11:30am at the Eleanor Murphy Branch Library

Meeting location:

What they're reading next

This list only contains upcoming titles.

Eleanor E. Murphy Book Club: The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown

Three sisters have returned to their childhood home, reuniting the eccentric Andreas family. Here, books are a passion (there is no problem a library card can't solve) and TV is something other people watch. Their father-a professor of Shakespeare who speaks almost exclusively in verse-named them after the Bard's heroines. It's a lot to live up to.

Eleanor E. Murphy Book Club: Visitation Street by Ivy Pochoda

It’s summertime in Red Hook, Brooklyn, a blue-collar dockside neighborhood. June and Val, two fifteen-year-olds, take a raft out onto the bay at night to see what they can see.

And then they disappear. Only Val will survive, washed ashore; semi-conscious in the weeds.

Eleanor E. Murphy Book Club: The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck

Nobel Laureate Pearl S. Buck’s epic Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and Oprah Book Club selection about a vanished China and one family’s shifting fortunes.
