Island Readers Book Group-Chincoteague Island Library


One of the great pleasures of living on Chincoteague is the Third Tuesday Book Club where we meet for fun, laughs, and of course a rich discussion of good reads. We are not shy about controversial topics, because we have become friends- it is just the characters in the books that we dissect, defend, and sometimes even despise. And that is one of the joys of books, being immersed in someone else’s life for 350 pages. We learn about ourselves our neighbors, and our world.

There’s an empty chair for you! Won’t you join us?

Island Readers Tuesday Book Group meets the 3rd Tuesday of each month at the Chincoteague Island Library at 7:00 pm. New members are welcome to join the discussion.

In case you were not able to be there for our last meeting.  

In March we will be reading ” The Nightingale ” by Kristen Hannah, led by Jan. Many of you have probably read this book already, but just in case:  In the quiet village of Carriveau, Vianne Mauriac says goodbye to her husband, Antoine, as he heads for the Front. She doesn’t believe that the Nazis will invade France…but invade they do, in droves of marching soldiers, in caravans of trucks and tanks, in planes that fill the skies and drop bombs upon the innocent. When a German captain requisitions Vianne’s home, she and her daughter must live with the enemy or lose everything. Without food or money or hope, as danger escalates all around them, she is forced to make one impossible choice after another to keep her family alive.
