Library Book Club

Join us for the Clarkesville Library Book Club! We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 10:30 AM in the Community Room at the Clarkesville Library. We read a variety of fiction and nonfiction books, and would love to have you join us! New members are welcome!

Our next book club meeting will be at 10:30 AM on Tuesday,  September 19th, and we will be discussing the book To The Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf. Please stop by or call the library at 706-754-4413 to put a copy of the book on hold (have your library card ready).

“Radiant as [To the Lighthouse] is in its beauty, there could never be a mistake about it: here is a novel to the last degree severe and uncompromising. I think that beyond being about the very nature of reality, it is itself a vision of reality.”—Eudora Welty, from the Introduction.The serene and maternal Mrs. Ramsay, the tragic yet absurd Mr. Ramsay, and their children and assorted guests are on holiday on the Isle of Skye. From the seemingly trivial postponement of a visit to a nearby lighthouse, Woolf constructs a remarkable, moving examination of the complex tensions and allegiances of family life and the conflict between men and women.
