Cinco Ranch Literary Lunch League To Discuss Different Books Online In January
Jan 20, 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 fall – all book-club meetings will take place online through Zoom/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 livestreamed over the Internet via Zoom/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 Zoom/WebEx sessions will be emailed to all who have registered.

The book to be discussed is Black Widow, Volumes 1-2, created by Nathan Edmondson. (This title is available on hoopla or in print. Please call the library to check on availability of print copies.)
Wednesday, January 20 – Book Talk (pre-recorded video)
In FBCL’s Book Talk series, library staff give a synopsis of a featured book and share their thoughts on it. Hear about books that might not have been on your radar – you may discover a new favorite! In this episode, hear about Death Comes to Durham, written by Jeanne Dams. Registration is not required; 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.
