Librarians in Northeast Ohio got together to form the OELMA N.E. Book Discussion Group. We met on a sunny afternoon at the Barnes and Noble Bookstore on Chagrin Blvd. With Cleveland weather luckily cooperating, outdoor tables provided a perfect setting to take an hour after school to meet friends and discuss The Great Gatsby, timely with the movie version of the book opening in May. However, the discussion soon digressed into sharing other recent reads: The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis, Splendors and Glooms by Laura Amy Schlitz; Ten by Gretchen MNeil, Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys , Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan; Miss Pergrines Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs; City of Women by David Gillham; Heist Society by Ally Carter . All different, but all enjoyed, and interesting to hear a little about the various books from another perspective. The next meeting is planned for September and if you are in the area, please plan to join us!
