FPL supports two book clubs, Fiction Only Book Club (FOBC) and Booked for Lunch Michigan (BFLM), by purchasing multiple copies for the collection, having scheduled book discussion on the selected books and by extending the check-out period (one month) without needing to be renewed until the next book club meeting. New members are welcome. Join in!
Fiction Only Book Club (FOBC)
The FOBC meets the third Wednesday of the month from 12PM to 1PM.
Members read interesting, thought-provoking books about different cultures, ethnicities, religions, and race. Lively, engaging discussions always ensue. If there is time, we end with a discussion of which books we’ve read and would recommend. New members are always welcome. Look for FOBC meetings in the Events calendar to see what book we are reading!
Booked for Lunch Michigan (BFLM)
Meet Michigan authors or authors who write about Michigan. Authors will discuss their (In-person and virtually) books, writing style, answer audience questions, and sell and sign books. Look for BFLM dates in the Events calendar!
