Dramatic Readings Book Club

Last Tuesday of Every Month

7:00 - 8:30 p.m.

If you love to read aloud to share a story or recite dramatic dialogue with other people, this Book Club is for you.

Each month we read a novel, play, or poetry. At meetings after briefly discussing the work, each member reads aloud a character’s dialogue, a poem, or narrates. Selections can include works by authors and poets as diverse as Mark Twain, Reginald Rose, Nora Ephron, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Emily Dickenson, Edgar Lee Masters, Tennessee Williams, Adrienne Rich, Charles Dickens, Allen Ginsberg, Edgar Allen Poe, William Shakespeare, Arthur Conan Doyle, and The Brothers Grimm.

This is a no-pressure Book Club solely for fun and relaxation. No memorization or acting experience is required, though actors are welcome. We read straight from the text inhand. The Library offers the group the option of presenting Dramatic Readings in the Ottinger Room to family and friends. The decision is made by the Book Club members.

Call the library and speak to a reference librarian if you’d like more information, are interested in attending a meeting, or would like to join.
