…to the Book Group

Hello and welcome to the Global Forum Book Group!


We meet the last Thursday of each month at 6:30pm, right here at the library. Each month we read a book about a current issue or location and discuss it – whether you have thoughts on the book itself or the topic generally. All are welcome and no registration required, just show up! We’ll have the next book available to borrow at the main desk if you need a copy.


For current dates and selections, go here.

For a list of past book selections, go here.

For the further reading lists for each book, go here.


For questions contact Alex Jones at jones@sawyerfreelibrary.org.


…to the Blog

This blog is an extension of the book group. Each book will have an its own post, so if you miss a meeting you can still share your thoughts as well as any related articles, books, or other suggestions you want to share.


Please keep all comments and conversation civil and (at least tangentially) related to the book group and our topics.

  1. Alex –

    I strongly recommended,as a monthly selection,”What’s Right with Islam” by Iman Feisal Abdul Rauf. I think it’s just as timely now, if not more so, than when it was originally published in 2004. He clearly demonstrates the compatibility of Islam with America’s founding principles, and provides strong arguments and good suggestions for working to minimize the rift between the Mid-East and America.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    George Bottger
