Brown Baggers Annual Selection Meeting – 2021

The Central Library Brown Baggers started as a third Thursday noon book discussion group back in September of 2008.  Brown Baggers is one of JMRL’s longest continuously running book groups. See what has been read over the years by checking this link.  The group is always open to new members and has varied in size over the years. 

Eleven Brown Baggers met virtually Thursday, December 16th to suggest titles for the group to read June 2022-May 2023.  A few regulars who couldn’t attend sent titles by email for consideration. We had a lively discussion as always with a good mix of non-fiction, fiction and classics suggested.  If you’re interested in seeing the full list of suggested titles, email Krista at

If you were unable to attend and are on the Brown Baggers email list, you can still submit your 3 title suggestions to Krista by Thursday December 23rd.  Please consider choosing titles that are in the JMRL collection.  After the 23rd, library staff will put all of the suggested titles in an online poll for members to vote on.

Our next book discussion will take place Thursday, January 20, when we will discuss The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson. If the full-length book is too long, try the summary! Feel free to email Krista at with any comments or questions, or for more information about Brown Baggers.
