Try Some Feel-Good Fiction for a Reading Lift

December 23, 2019 — Looking for a lift from your book collection? The new Feel-Good Fiction book discussion group may have the answer. Come to one session, or some, or all!

 It’s a new book discussion group for adults that meets monthly to discuss Up Lit. That’s the label publishers give fiction that affirms positive human connections.

 According to LibraryAware: Even as characters confront tough circumstances, they also encounter kindness, humor, hope, compassion, empathy, and the best of ordinary humanity. Plot specifics, subject matter, and setting can vary: the story's central goal is to leave readers with a good vibe.

The group begins meeting Tuesday, Jan. 14, 7 p.m. in the Library Center Harrison Room to discuss “The Keeper of Lost Things” by Ruth Hogan.

The next meeting is Tuesday, Feb. 18, same time and place, for “How to Stop Time” by Matt Haig.
