Looking for a way to casually connect with fellow readers? Kingston Frontenac Public Library’s Book Chat is a monthly online discussion group for adults who like to read.
“If you like to talk about what you’ve been reading but feel that a book club where you have to read an assigned title isn’t for you, check out KFPL’s online Book Chat,” said Anne Hall, Programming and Outreach Librarian.
While you are always welcome to discuss any book or literary trend that excites you, there is a special theme each month. In January the theme will be Tales from Home — that is, books about your
hometown or homeland. Do you have a favourite book, either fiction or nonfiction, that evokes memories of where you grew up or where your family comes from?
Next month’s theme will be Freedom to Read, and March will be Mystery Month.
Book Chat meets on Zoom at 6 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month. There’s a new format for 2022: instead of signing up once for the whole series, participants will now register separately for each month. Please note that registration always closes at 5 p.m. on the day of the program, so remember to register early to secure your spot.
This month’s program takes place Wednesday, Jan. 19. Register online at or by phone at (613) 549-8888. Registrants will be emailed a Zoom link immediately upon registration and will need to download Zoom in advance.
