One Book - One Lincoln Book Discussion Opportunities

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 Light Between Oceans during September, October and November. Everyone is welcome; for most groups, there will be no need to pre-register.[NOTE: The list of discussion opportunities may continue to grow as we hear from additional book discussion groups. If your private book group would be open to having guests for a One Book – One Lincoln discussion, please contact the Lincoln City Libraries at 402-441-8503 to let us know that we can list you on this page! Please revisit this page for updated information as One Book – One Lincoln continues.]
