Greenwich Library book groups

Greenwich Library sponsors four adult book groups, including Fiction Addiction, a group focused on contemporary fiction which was launched last spring by Library staffers Joanne Gaither and Robin Terzi. The new group meets every other month.  

The next meeting of Fiction Addiction will be on Monday, January 9 from 6-7:30 p.m. in the Meeting Room where they will discuss The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway. Published in 2009, this novel with universal resonance tells the story of three people trying to survive in a city rife with the extreme fear of desperate times, and of the sorrowing cellist who plays undaunted in their midst.

From Kirkus Reviews, “Indelible imagery and heartbreaking characters give authority to this chilling story and make human a crisis typically overlooked in literature.”  

Book availability: The libraries have 16 physical copies of The Cellist of Sarajevo plus eBook and audiobook versions on Overdrive. Check the catalog for location and availability.
