The Stratford Library has announced its selections for the Fall/Winter 2021 series of “Books Over Coffee”, the monthly book discussion program that has been a popular staple at the library for over 30 years. The library continues to offer the latest in current titles and topics for its patrons and will return on site in its Lovell Room beginning September 29th. “Books Over Coffee” is hosted by Stratford Library staffer Linda LiDestri.
Current bestsellers and notable authors mark the selections chosen. Opening the series on September 29th will be a discussion of Kevin Wilson’s one-of-a-kind novel, Nothing to See Here. A young woman, Lillian, is asked by her friend to be caretaker for her husband’s twin step kids, a pair that can spontaneously combust when they are agitated, flames igniting from their skin in a disturbing but beautiful way. Lillian and the twins learn to trust each other – and stay cool – just as her friend’s family is bracing for a major announcement. The novel received glowing reviews upon publication last year.
Other titles for discussion in 2021 will be Laura Dave’s current bestselling mystery, The Last Thing He Told Me on October 27th, I Want You To Know We’re Still Here by Esther Safron (November 17th) and Oona Out Of Order by Margarita Montimore (December 22nd).
Copies of all books are currently available for loan at the library’s Circulation Desk. The titles are also available for loan on Kindle and Nook eReaders. The discussion programs are free and open to the public.
“Books Over Coffee” will be held in the Stratford Library’s Lovell Room beginning at noon each month. Participants who wish to take part via Zoom should call the Library at 203.385.4162 in order to be sent a link.
