The First Monday Classics Book Club meets on the first Monday of the month at 6:30 p.m. to discuss a classic novel. Meetings are held at the main library in Hillsborough. The discussions are facilitated by Piedmont Laureate and local author James Maxey and local author Nathan Kotecki.
For May, the group read and discussed Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy, and had a lively discussion about the character of Bathsheba.
Upcoming book selections include:
- June 2: Winesburg, Ohio by Sherwood Anderson
- July 6: Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
- August 3: The Awakening by Kate Chopin
- (hiatus in September)
- October 5: The Brothers Karamozov by Fyodor Dosteovsky
Books are selected by group consensus, so if there’s a classic you’re yearning to read or reread and discuss, please join us!
