MPL History Book Group

MPL History Book Group

– First Wednesdays, 7:00 – 8:45 pm

Join a lively discussion group focused on history!  A subject is determined each month and participants read a non-fiction history book related to the topic.  New readers are welcome to join and experience history from many points of view on one topic.

The book group is on summer hiatus for July but will reconvene in August!

August Topic: The 1920’s

August Meeting Date: Wednesday, August 7, 2024 from 7:00 to 8:45 PM – Milano Center (201 W Foster St) – In-person Meeting

Starting July 3, please register online for the August meeting!

The topic for August is The 1920’s Americans refer to this decade as the Roaring Twenties or Jazz Age, while Europeans call it the Golden Twenties or Années folles (French for ‘crazy years’) – whatever you wish to call it, it was a lively time period!  Choose a non-fiction book or article focusing on an aspect of your choice: an event, a movement, a person – anything goes as long as it is set within the context of the 1920’s.  For an American-perspective of the time period, check out The History Channel Website Roaring Twenties.  If you need guidance in finding a book, check out this selection of titles which are just a sampling of what is available through the NOBLE library system.

Everyone is welcome, whether you read a book and want to share or just want to listen and learn!

During the library’s renovation project, the Milano Center has generously offered us a room for our meeting.  Please check in at the front desk when you arrive; doors will close and be locked by 7:30 PM.

Please be sure to register online for the August meeting using the Library Event Calendar so the library can accommodate all those planning to attend.

If you have questions, please contact Erin at or call the library at 781-665-2313.
