The October meeting of Northwest Mississippi Community College’s Reading Roundtable, made possible with funds from Sycamore Bank, will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 29 at 2 p.m., in the R.C. Pugh Library on the Senatobia campus.

The Amor Towles book “Rules of Civility” features a clever heroine. Katya is a Brooklynite who manages to escape to Manhattan and reinvent herself as Katey. In this debut title, Towles evokes the movie “Stage Door,” with the black and white scenery of a constantly moving sidewalk in the 1930s and 1940s. The discussion will be led by led by Maggie Moran, director of learning resources.

The purpose of the program is to provide a forum for lifelong learners to read and discuss a variety of books during the course of every semester. Librarians and faculty at Northwest will lead the discussions. Meetings will be held on the last Tuesday of each month.

Participants must fill out a registration form, and those wishing to purchase a copy of the book being discussed may do so for $5. Personal or library copies may also be used.
