Book Groups


Lincoln Library Book Groups

Classics Book Group

The Classics Book Discussion Group meets the third Monday of the month, except during summer, at noon in the Bicentennial Room on the 3th floor of the library. Attendees are welcome to bring their lunch. Coffee and tea will be provided. Please call the Readers' Services desk at 753-4900 extension 206 if you have any questions about the reading group.

Note: The Classics Book Group does not meet in December.

On Monday, January 12, 2015, the group will meet to discuss Crime & Punishment, by Fyodor Dostoyevsky.

Jacket Notes: Crime and Punishment is one of the most important novels of the nineteenth century. It is the story of a murder committed on principle, of a killer who wishes to set himself outside and above society. The novel is marked by Dostoevsky's own harrowing experience in penal servitude, and yet contains moments of wild humor.

Contemporary Fiction Book Group

The Contemporary Fiction Book Discussion Group meets at 6 p.m. in the DeFrates Reading Room (2nd floor) on the fourth Wednesday of each month. Please call the Readers' Services desk at 753-4900, ext. 206, if you have any questions about the reading group.

On Wednesday, December 17, 2014, the group will meet to discuss The Husband's Secret, by Liane Moriarty.

Jacket Notes:
"At the heart of The Husband's Secret is a letter that's not meant to be read

My darling Cecilia, if you're reading this, then I've died. . .

Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret--something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive. . . .

Cecilia Fitzpatrick has achieved it all--she's an incredibly successful businesswoman, a pillar of her small community, and a devoted wife and mother. Her life is as orderly and spotless as her home. But that letter is about to change everything, and not just for her: Rachel and Tess barely know Cecilia--or each other--but they too are about to feel the earth-shattering repercussions of her husband's secret.

Acclaimed author Liane Moriarty has written a gripping, thought-provoking novel about how well it is really possible to know our spouses--and, ultimately, ourselves."
