Our fall selection which we will discuss on Thursday, October 18th, at 6:30 PM is We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson. This title is also our 2018 Community Read selection and another book discussion meeting will be offered on Wednesday, October 17th from Noon - 1 PM.

Truth Be Told Non-Fiction Book Club
Tuesdays in 2018: March 6, May 1, August 7, November 6
6:30 - 7:30 PM
Tompkins Trust Company Study Room
Truth Be Told Non-Fiction Book Club meets quarterly to discuss a selected non-fiction title. Our meetings are held on Tuesdays from 6:30-7:30pm in the Tompkins Trust Company Study Room.
The November 6 selection is Educated by Tara Westover.
Educated is an account of the struggle for self-invention. It is a tale of fierce family loyalty and of the grief that comes with severing the closest of ties. With the acute insight that distinguishes all great writers, Westover has crafted a universal coming-of-age story that gets to the heart of what an education is and what it offers: the perspective to see one's life through new eyes and the will to change it.
Please register with us in advance to obtain a copy of the selected title (there are a limited number available). For more information, or to register, contact Tom Burns at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also register for an upcoming Truth Be Told meeting by exploring our events calendar.
