December 29 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 6:00 pm on day Last of the month, repeating until December 29, 2021

The Belknap Mill Virtual Book Club is growing! We are excited to be combining with a like minded group of history inspired readers, the Page Turners.

Going forward the Belknap Mill Page Turners Book Club will be led jointly by Heidi Smith and Cathy Waldron. 

November Selection:

The Professor and the Madman
by Simon Winchester

The making of the OED was one of the most ambitious projects ever undertaken. As definitions were collected, the overseeing committee, led by Professor James Murray, was stunned to discover that one man, Dr. W. C. Minor, had submitted more than ten thousand. But their surprise would pale in comparison to what they were about to discover when the committee insisted on honoring him. For Dr. Minor, an American Civil War veteran, was also an inmate at an asylum for the criminally insane.

You can email them at: bookclub@belknapmill.org for more information.
The club meets the last Wednesday of the month at 6pm via zoom.
