Solana Beach Library offers a monthly Author Book Club, which meets the last Wednesday of each month from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Each month an author is selected and each member chooses and reads a book by that author. The group meets to discuss the author and share a short summary and impressions of the books. This format provides a different “book club” experience, whereas members are exposed to multiple works by famous (and not-so-famous) authors. The next meeting is Wednesday, Sept. 25, when members will be reading books by Australian author Arthur Upfield. The library is located at 157 Stevens Avenue in Solana Beach. For more information, please call 858-755-1404.
