Reader’s Select Book Club

My name is Chris Garland I am a librarian at the Half Hollow Hills Community Library in Melville. I lead a non-fiction book club that meets every third tuesday of the month at 7:30. This month 12/19 we are reading “American Sphinx” : The Character of Thomas Jefferson by Joseph J. Ellis. The book explores how the myth of Jefferson has broken away from the link with the historical Jefferson. The result being we have lost sight of Jefferson the man.
The feedback for this book club has been very positive. Most people feel that they would have never thought of reading these books and are usually very happy they did. The subject matter of the books we choose is all over the map. If you are interested you can pick up a copy of our current title at the Melville branch. 421-4535 ext. 326. Hope to see you there
