Plainsboro Library Book Club

Our book club is open to all. We aren’t tied to a specific theme, and have read everything from nonfiction, memoirs, thrillers, literary fiction, and even a little bit of horror!
We generally meet every second Wednesday of the month at 7pm in the History Room, though check the website just in case there’s been a rare change in the schedule.

If you are curious to what we have read in the past, a list of the book club’s past selections are available here.

Set in the deep American South between the wars, it is the tale of Celie, a young black girl born into poverty and segregation. Raped repeatedly by the man she calls ‘father’, she has two children taken away from her, is separated from her beloved sister Nettie and is trapped into an ugly marriage. But then she meets the glamorous Shug Avery, singer and magic-maker – a woman who has taken charge of her own destiny. Gradually, Celie discovers the power and joy of her own spirit, freeing her from her past and reuniting her with those she loves.
