Chapter Chat

Chapter Chat meets on the last Monday of each month, at 6:30 pm. Chapter Chat is a monthly book discussion group for adults. Chapter Chat is shaking things up during 2019. The group is asking a few questions, Books or Movies? Which is better? Do you like movies?  Do you enjoy comparing the book to its film counterpart?  That’s what the Chapter Chat group is doing in 2019. In 2019 we are planning to read books that have been or will be made into movies.  For April we are reading The Children Act by Ian McEwan. We plan to watch the movie together at the Chapter Chat meeting which is the last Monday of each month at 6:30 pm.  Whether you read the physical book, the e-book, or listen to it each way is excellent. These books are available to you in a variety of formats you can check out a physical book at the Chickasha Public Library, or you can use your Chickasha Public Library card to access the Oklahoma Virtual Library where you can get a copy of the book in e-book or e-audio form.
