Read Cute: A Romance Novel Book Club

Third Thursday of the month

Thursday, June 17

6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Are you a veteran romance reader? Did binging Bridgeton on Netflix introduce you to the romance genre for the first time? Then join us for Read Cute, the newest book club at the Blackstone Library! Lead by local romance author Regina Kyle, we’ll indulge a passion for literature with romance novels fit for any persuasion. At each meeting you’ll also get to meet and chat with the author of that month’s book – a truly swoon worthy opportunity!

This month we’ll be discussing Any Rogue Will Do by Bethany Bennett. You can read the full synopsis here:

For exactly one season, Lady Charlotte Wentworth played the biddable female the ton expected—and all it got her was society’s mockery and derision. Now she’s determined to be in charge of her own future. So when an unwanted suitor tries to manipulate her into an engagement, she has a plan. He can’t claim to be her fiancé if she’s engaged to someone else. Even if it means asking for help from the last man she would ever marry.

Ethan, Viscount Amesbury, made a lot of mistakes, but the one he regrets the most is ruining Lady Charlotte’s reputation. Going along with her charade is the least he can do to clean the slate and perhaps earn her forgiveness. Pretending to be in love with the woman he’s never forgotten is easy. What isn’t easy is convincing her to give him a second chance.

The Blackstone Library would like to thank Bethany Bennett for donating copies of the book to help support Read Cute!

Awakening to Change: A Social Justice Book Club

Thursdays

Thursday, June 17

7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

We are often asked to be the change we want to see in the world, but we can’t change what we can’t see.

As part of our Awakening to Change series, the Blackstone Library is offering a social justice book club. Each month we’ll read a book selected to help us develop a shared understanding of the complex issues surrounding racism. Over the course of several in-depth discussions, we aim to begin understanding the world in a new way.

Copies of the book will be available at the library for you to borrow. You can email programs@blackstonelibrary.org or call (203) 488-1441 ext. 318 to do so.

If you would like to purchase a personal copy for your own social justice library, People Get Ready Books in New Haven will donate 15% of every purchase to the Blackstone Library. Simply visit their website to order, use promo code AWAKENING, and you’ll be supporting both the library and a women and black owned local business. Books can be picked up at the store at 119 Whalley Ave, New Haven CT 203.954.6678
