A Guest At Their Table

Last year we began a series focusing on local book clubs. Today we have some interesting news from a club we first featured last March.  Please consider sharing stories about your book club by adding a comment to this article or by emailing us at

The All in the Family book group, which was featured in an earlier post, was delighted to have recent CambridgeREADS author Audrey Schulman as a guest at its latest meeting. One of this book group's members met Schulman at a book signing last spring at Porter Square Bookstore where the author mentioned her belief that book clubs were a lifeblood for writers.

At the meeting Ms. Schulman talked about her love of all things foreign and her approach to writing "from research, not experience."  She added that she "learns better that way" and is able to synthesize the material more effectively. Schulman was especially interested in the members' reactions to the ending of her book Three Weeks in December.  The group's "neurotypical"members were intrigued and stimulated by her frank and clear comments.

There are always great things happening at the library! For more information on how you can get involved with the Friends and help to support our Cambridge libraries click here.
