Mostly Literary Fiction Book Discussion Group

The Mostly Literary Fiction Book Discussion Group is led by librarian Sally Thomas at the Hayward Public Library, California.

Literary fiction is often described by what it is not. We don't read mysteries or genre fiction, including science fiction, romance, or thrillers. We do read books and short stories that have interesting or unusual plots, characters worth talking about, writing that can astonish you, conclusions worth debating, and ideas that will linger long after you have closed the book.
