Two popular book discussion groups hosted by Dayton Metro Library are taking their conversations online. Pub-Lit and theLGBTQIA+ Book Club will meet monthly at their usual day and time, via Webex, starting in August. Registered participants will need a stable internet connection, a microphone enabled device or headset and, if desired, a webcam. Those without internet access can participate by phone.
“Until we can gather in person again, we’re getting together virtually to talk about books,” said Librarian Kristen Allen-Vogel, leader of Pub-Lit, which used to meet over food and drinks at Brixx Ice House. “Now,” Allen-Vogel jokes, “it’s BYOB.”
The LGBTQIA+ Book Club also moves online to talk about fiction and nonfiction books featuring LGBTQIA+ characters or themes.
Both new and returning members are welcome to join the free discussions. Upcoming titles are:
First Tuesday each month, 7:00 - 9:00 pm.
Second Monday each month, 7:00 - 8:30 pm.
Monday, August 10, 10:00 am on DML’s FB page (viewable for 2 months)
