Food for Thought Book Discussion


Conference Room

Food for Thought is the library's longest-lived book discussion group! Come in every 4th Tuesday February through October and spend a noon hour talking about books! Themes for the year vary widely from month to month. Members read whatever they choose on the selected themes. Some popular themes that are often repeated annually include cooking (with samples!), poetry, and short stories. There is an occasional film or guest speaker. Feel free to bring your own brown bag lunch and come to share your favorites. Food for Thought is sponsored by the Friends of the Marion Public Library.
