Ah, the holidays. Did you all have a great Thanksgiving? I hope you did. Mine was very relaxing. We watched the Macy’s Parade, the dog show, and all the football. All of the football. Did you know that Dallas and Detroit are the only two teams that always host an NFL game on Thanksgiving?
You do now, and so do I, because when your family knows you’re a librarian you get asked all the questions, even on Thanksgiving. (Which I don’t mind!)

At times like this, having a group to discuss your book with is essential and inspires intellect, curiosity and imagination. Frisco Public Library has several book clubs for every kind of reader, whether you want to meet in person or join an online discussion. Our book clubs offer a safe and friendly environment where you can meet new people who love reading as much as you do!
Like many readers, I enjoy biographical books. Writers use an enticing array of approaches to telling the story of a person’s life.
When an author writes his or her own life story, it can be an autobiography or a memoir, or maybe a fictionalized autobiography. If someone else writes the book, it could be a biography or even historical fiction. It all depends on what the writer wants to share and how the author thinks the story is best told.
