Cinco Ranch Literary Lunch League To Discuss “The House At Riverton” Online In May


May 10, 2021

Book lovers don’t need to let COVID-19 social distancing keep them from sharing their opinions and feelings about books with other readers.

Fort Bend County Libraries (FBCL) will offer an online option for book-club meetings this spring – all book-club meetings will take place online through Webex so that readers can interact with others in real time and participate from the comfort and safety of home!

Fort Bend County Libraries’ book clubs represent a wide variety of books and genres. Book clubs that were previously specific to particular branches can now be enjoyed by readers all across the library system.

Books can be requested by calling the libraries, or by placing them on hold in the online catalog. They can be picked up from the libraries through FBCL’s Books & More! Curbside Pick-Up service. Digital versions of some books are also available for download from FBCL’s eLibrary.

Because the book club meetings will be live-streamed over the Internet via Webex, participants should register for the meetings by going to the FBCL website – www.fortbend.lib.tx.us – click on “Classes and Events,” and register for the book club meetings of their choice. A link to the Webex sessions will be emailed to all who have registered.

Wednesday, May 5, 12:00 noon-1:00 pm – Literary Lunch League Book Club

The House at Riverton

The book to be discussed is The House at Riverton, a novel written by Kate Morton. This title is available in print; call the Cinco Ranch Branch Library to check availability of copies.

Thursday, May 6 – Book Talk: Bridgerton Read-Alikes (pre-recorded video).

In FBCL’s Book Talk series, library staff give a synopsis of featured books and share their thoughts on it. In this episode, hear about “Bridgerton” read-alikes. The new Netflix series, based on Julia Quinn’s regency romance novels, has inspired interest in the historical regency subgenre. Hear about similar novels, such as Wicked and the Wallflower, by Sarah MacLean; Secrets of a Summer Night, by Lisa Kleypas; and While the Duke was Sleeping, by Sophie Jordan. A link to the video will be posted on FBCL’s online calendar on the designated date, and it can be viewed at any time.

The book to be discussed is Moloka’i, a novel written by Alan Brennert. This title is available in print; call the library to check on availability of additional print copies.
