Have you always wanted to join a book club, but couldn’t find the time? Tired of being locked in your house and miss your book club friends? The Fulton County Library System has a new online option for you!
The online book club is a private moderated online forum where community members discuss books and network with each other. Members participate according to their schedule – day or night. The group will spend approximately two months on each book, so there is plenty of time to read.
The current session of the book club started on March 18, 2021. Club members typically read two chapters per week, so you can join at any time without falling behind.
Sign up at www.pbc.guru/fultonlibraries to join the group for the next book discussion, Queen’s Gambit by Walter Tevis.
Engaging and fast-paced, this gripping coming-of-age novel of chess, feminism, and addiction speeds to a conclusion as elegant and satisfying as a mate in four. Now an acclaimed Netflix series.
Eight-year-old orphan Beth Harmon is quiet, sullen, and by all appearances unremarkable. That is, until she plays her first game of chess. Her senses grow sharper, her thinking clearer, and for the first time in her life she feels herself fully in control. By the age of sixteen, she’s competing for the U.S. Open championship. But as Beth hones her skills on the professional circuit, the stakes get higher, her isolation grows more frightening, and the thought of escape becomes all the more tempting.
There is no cost to participate. Free eBooks, books and audiobooks are available for patrons of The Fulton County Library System.
