July's group will be reading/listening The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins on July 26 at 7:00 PM. Books are also available via Overdrive. We hope you can join us for this exciting new evening book group.

Tuesday Poetry Workshops at 6:30 PM
Led by Southborough residents Elliott and Nancy Simons, this regular poetry workshop meets every other week on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month. Sessions start at 6:30 PM until about 8:30 PM. The group is loosely associated with the Worcester County Poetry Association. Starting in July, the group will meet in the library's downstairs "Book Sale" Room.
At each session, each participant is asked to bring five copies of their original poetry and distribute them to the group. The poem will be read aloud, and the group will provide constructive feedback. Don't have a poem? No problem. Come stop by and see if this group is for you.
