MPL History Book Club

MPL History Book Club

– First Wednesdays, 7:00pm –

Join a lively discussion group focused on history!  A subject is determined each month and participants read a non-fiction history book related to the topic.  New readers are welcome to join and experience history from many points of view on one topic.  No other history book club offers this unique approach!


February Topic: Medical Discoveries

February Meeting: Wednesday, February 3, 2021 – 7:00 PM on Zoom

Everyone is welcome, whether they read a book and want to share or they just want to listen and learn!

Amazing discoveries have advanced the medical world throughout time: Fleming’s discovery of penicillin, Morton’s game changing anesthesia, Curie’s discovery of radium and its contributions to treating cancer.  Participants should read a nonfiction book of their choosing related to a Medical Discovery.  Join in at the meeting to share your findings with the group.

Need help finding a book on your topic?  Please contact the library ( or 781-665-2313).  In addition to accessing physical books through our Front Door Pickup Service, the library also offers e-books and e-audiobooks through Overdrive/Libby and Hoopla!

The meeting will be held through the remote conferencing platform, Zoom.  If you would like to join in, please register online by Tuesday, February 2nd so that you will receive an invitation via email to join the meeting!
