Special to the Express
Members of the Second Chapters Book Club met at the Holmes Public Library on Nov. 18 to discuss the thriller “Paranoids” by Lisa Jackson. Librarian Lynnette Toohey led the group in discussion. .
Second Chapters is a cooperative book club between the Holmes Public Library and the Halifax Council on Aging. Meetings usually take place at 2 p.m. on the fourth Thursday of the month in the community room of the Holmes Public Library. Due to the Christmas holiday the December meeting will be held on Dec. 9. Discussion will center on “Silent Night” by Robert B. Parker with Helen Brann. This Spenser for hire mystery takes place in Boston around the Christmas holiday. The book was started by Parker before his death in 2010. Parker’s longtime agent Helen Brann completed the novel. Copies of the book in various formats are available through the Holmes Public Library.
In addition to Second Chapters, The Holmes Public Library hosts three other adult books clubs scheduled with meeting choices of afternoon or evening. One of the book clubs is focused on nonfiction.
