Book Discussion Group


About the Riverview Veterans Memorial Library Book Discussion Group


If you like to read and exchange ideas with others, join our book lovers’ group for some stimulating conversations on a wide variety of books! The library’s Book Discussion Group is led by Library Assistant and longtime Riverview resident, Deborah Helton. Debbie’s background as a teacher, librarian, and avid reader keep her current in multiple genres of literature.

Our regular attendees hail from a variety of backgrounds, love reading different kinds of material, and never fail to contribute interesting perspectives on current selections. We have all the ingredients to make discussions animated affairs enjoyed by everyone! Attendance is free and open to all members of the public. Come join us! Everyone is welcome.

Meetings are generally held the first Monday of every month at 7:00 pm. All books are available in advance of each meeting and can be checked out at the circulation desk.

Take a look at the lists of recent readings at the bottom of this page for a taste of some of the literary flavors we have read and enjoyed.
