Book Discussion Groups


The Thirteenth Tale

Community Book Discussion Groups

One of the main goals of One Book - One Lincoln is to encourage residents to read and openly discuss the same book. Talking about great literature with others often adds richness and depth to the experience of reading. We encourage you to join other members of the community in discussing The Thirteenth Tale during September, October and November. Everyone is welcome; there will be no need to pre-register.


The Discussion Groups schedule is still being finalized. Please continue to check this page for updates and/or new additions!
