2020 Adult Summer Reading Club

Welcome to Syosset Library’s 11th Annual Adult Summer Reading Club. This year’s program will be a little different but still simple and stress-free, just the way summer should be! Sign up and submit titles of any book you start reading on the day you register and finish reading by August 14, 2020.

For each title you submit, you will have a chance to win a raffle prize. Prizes will be announced via Zoom on Tuesday, August 18, 2020 at 3 PM. Due to COVID-19 safety measures, we will be introducing a smaller version of the traditional Adult Summer Reading Club. Prizes will be limited to two per participant. Winners’ names will be pulled at random.

Registration is required to participate and began on Wednesday, July 1. All titles must be submitted by Friday, August 14 at 6 PM.

Afternoon Book Discussion

with Sonia Grgas, Reference Librarian

Tuesday, July 25, 2017 at 1:30 PM

“Before John Glenn orbited the earth, or Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of dedicated female mathematicians known as “human computers” used pencils, slide rules and adding machines to calculate the numbers that would launch rockets, and astronauts, into space.

Among these problem-solvers were a group of exceptionally talented African American women, some of the brightest minds of their generation. Starting in World War II and moving through to the Cold War, the Civil Rights Movement and the Space Race, Hidden Figures follows the interwoven accounts of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson and Christine Darden, four African American women who participated in some of NASA’s greatest successes. It chronicles their careers over nearly three decades, as they faced challenges, forged alliances and used their intellect to change their own lives, and their country’s future.” -from the publisher

Book to Film Discussion

Join us on August 4, 2017 at 2 PM for a showing of the film, Hidden Figuresthe Academy Award nominated adaptation of the book. A short discussion will follow the movie.

 

Both programs are free.

No registration required.

Books will be available at the circulation desk one month prior to the discussion.
