Saturday Samplers Book Group to Meet

Bernardsville Library’s book discussion group, Saturday Samplers, will meet on Saturday, March 5 at 3:30 pm to discuss The Road From Coorain (1989) by Jill Ker Conway.

Ms. Conway is a distinguished historian who has specialized in the experience of women in America. The Road from Coorain is the autobiographical story of her young life—from her childhood on an isolated sheep-farm in Australia and her early education in war-time Sydney, to her departure for America and her eventual ascension in 1975 to the presidency of Smith College, the first woman president in its history. She is now a Visiting Professor at MIT.

Led by Readers’ Services Assistant, Evelyn Fischel, Saturday Samplers is a book discussion group dedicated to sampling various kinds of literature, including short stories, nonfiction, new and old novels, and even teen fiction. Its goal is to search out interesting, noteworthy, and sometimes overlooked books. Readers can find information about the group and about the books and authors on the reading list at http://saturdaysamplers.blogspot.com/. No sign-up is needed to join the discussion. Call the library at 766-0118 for more information.

There is no charge to attend the discussion, and no sign-up is needed. The group will meet in the Library’s Community Room.
