Greenwich Library launches Fiction Addiction book club

Recognizing the need for a new book group, Greenwich Library staffers Joanne Gaither and Robin Terzi are launching Fiction Addiction. This new offering will focus exclusively on the exciting world of contemporary fiction for the benefit of patrons who, like Joanne and Robin themselves, are fans of fiction set in modern times.

The first meeting of Fiction Addiction will be held on Monday, May 9 from 6-7:30 p.m. in the Meeting Room. Joanne and Robin have selected We Are Called to Rise, a debut novel by Laura McBride for the group’s first read. They chose this title because McBride is a relatively new author, and Rise is a title that people are less likely to have read before. The Library has acquired 17 copies – book format only. Check the catalog for location and availability.

Says Library Journal, “McBride has written an urgent morality tale for our times in the form of this poignant and gripping debut.”

Greenwich Library staff members Joanne Gaither and Robin Terzi have often been asked why there isn’t a library-sponsored fiction book club. Robin’s work in circulation makes her keenly aware of new and popular titles and Joanne often assists patrons in selecting reading material. Their combined experience and personal love for contemporary fiction – and patron interest – led to the creation of ‘Fiction Addiction’.  

Greenwich Library hosts five additional book clubs for adults, which meet either monthly or bimonthly.  These include Foreign Affairs Book Discussion Group – third Tuesday 7-9 p.m.; Friends Book Group – second Tuesday, 1-3 p.m.; Great Books Diussion Group – first Thursday 9-11:30 a.m.; Next Chapter Book Group – second and fourth Wednesday 5:30-6:30 p.m; Amici Del Libro Italian Language Book Group – first and third Mondays from 12:30-2:30 p.m.  For more information about Library Book Groups, including groups held at the Branches, visit
