Secaucus Library’s nonfiction book group will meet 7 p.m. September 8 to discuss Night by Elie Wiesel. The group selected the book partially to commemorate the Nobel Laureate and Holocaust survivor’s recent passing. Night is Wiesel’s masterpiece, a candid, horrific and deeply poignant autobiographical account of his survival as a teenager in the Nazi death camps.
The Witches: Salem, 1692 by Pulitzer Prize winning author Stacy Schiff was selected for the October 6 book discussion. Listed by Time magazine as one of the top 10 nonfiction books of 2015, The Witches: Salem, 1692 promises to help us understand the incredible hysteria that left fourteen women and five men hanged and an elderly man crushed to death.
The nonfiction book group meets 7 p.m. the first Thursday of every month at Secaucus Public Library. (The second Thursday for September and December.) At each meeting the group votes on selections for upcoming meetings. Copies of books are available at the library as well as a limited number of e-book copies. Registration for the discussion group is strongly encouraged and can be done through the library’s website or by calling library director Jenifer May at 201-330-2083 x4011.
