Book Clubs


The Stockbridge Library’s Book Club meets on the second Thursday of each month at 5:00 p.m. at the library.  We welcome new and old book club members and their suggestions for what to read next – fiction, non-fiction, mysteries, you name it.  Please join us and share your ideas for how to make this the best book club around.


Copies of the current month’s selection are available to check out at the circulation desk.  For more information, please call the library at (413) 298-5501.

Book Club

Join the book club on Thursday, October 12, 2017 at 5:00 p.m.  This month, we’ll discuss two different titles in two different formats.

The featured book will be Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking by Malcolm Gladwell, which explores those first moments of thought/reaction that tell us more than we realize.  We’ll combine that with an audiobook by Taylor Mali called The Spoken Word Revolution: Slam, Hip-Hop and the Poetry of a New Generation.  Slam poetry is a form of competition with poetry, touching on current topics and identities.  Listen to all or some of the poetry.  At our meeting, we will compare the outside-the-box thinking in Blink with the outside-the-standard-poetry of Taylor Mali.  Copies of both titles will be available at the front desk.

The book club generally meets at 5:00 p.m. on the second Thursday of the month.  New members always welcome – even if you haven’t read the book!
