Read Aloud Book Club (95th)

Thursday, October 20, 2016 at 10:00 AM -- 95th Street Library
Reading aloud is a long-standing social tradition. Historically, families often read together as a form of entertainment and factory workers had books read to them as a way to relieve the tedium. The library is reaching out in that tradition to create an adult read aloud book club for those who wish to enjoy and explore the written word in this historical tradition. The book club is open to all adult readers, those who are native speakers and those who are learning. The books will be read at a pace determined by the group. Books include: "The Call of the Wild" by Jack London, "Of Mice and Men" by John Steinbeck, "Animal Farm" by George Orwell and other titles.
