•Book Clubs


Mountain Green has  2 book clubs in the Highlands/Monte Verde area. One club is chaired by Carole McCain and has about 9 ladies attending. They meet monthly on the first Tuesday.  They met this week and discussed The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. The book covers 3 generations.  A young girl is sent to Australia without her parents.  Her grand-daughter researches and discovers her grand-mother’s mysterious past in England.

This month they are reading The Witch of Blackbird Pond--a “Halloween” story set in Puritan times.  For November they are reading The Ladies Number One Detective Agency (the first book in the series) by Alexander McCall.  

One of the ladies presents 3 books each month and the group selects one to read for the coming month.  If you are interested in the joining the group, call Carole.

The second group is chaired by Pam Bindrup and has about 8 ladies that attend.  For the October meeting, they are discussing Eat, Pray, Love and for November the group will read and discuss On Gold Mountain by Lisa See.  This group meets the first Wednesday of the month at 4:00 p.m.  Let Pam know if you are interested in joining the group. 

This group gets their books from the Utah Humanities Council from a list of books that they have on-line.  The council sends the books each month and the only cost is to ship the books back.  The group pays yearly dues of a few dollars that covers the cost of shipping the books to UHC.  Group members can receive news from UHC and their happenings.  

This month there are several renowned authors visiting and lecturing at different libraries state-wide. Lia Mangum is coming to the Morgan County Library on Oct 20 at 7:00 p.m.  She is the author of children’s fantasy books including The Hourglass Door.  You can download a schedule of statewide events at
