The Grafton Public Library presents…

Lunch Box Book Group

Home  -  Hours  -  Contact Us


The Lunch Box Book Group meets monthly on the 4th Tuesday of the month from noon-1:30ish pm and offers a chance to get together and discuss books on a common theme.  The goal is to talk about the various titles we have read, allowing attendees to build a reading list while reviewing the highlights (or lowlights) of their chosen books.  You may bring a lunch if you desire—there will always be a light snack available.  Suggested book titles for each theme are available at the library (click on lists to the right) or you may prefer to select another book on the theme from your library or a book store. Come prepared to share a little bit about your book and join the wider conversation, although it is always an option to just sit and listen.
