The March meeting of Northwest Mississippi Community College’s Reading Roundtable, made possible with funds from Sycamore Bank, will be held on Tuesday, March 25 at 2 p.m., in the R.C. Pugh Library on the Senatobia campus.

Reference Librarian Courtney Hicks will lead a discussion of Maria Semple’s book, “Where’d You Go Bernadette.”

Semple is a novelist and veteran comedy writer who worked on the television shows “Arrested Development” and “Mad About You.”  Julie Bosman of the New York Times writes, “Where’d You Go, Bernadette,’ published by Little, Brown & Company tells the story of Bernadette, a former architect who won a MacArthur “genius” grant and then disappeared from public view; her tech-guru husband, Elgin Branch, who is nerd-famous for an especially rousing TE

D talk; and their precocious teenage daughter, Bee, who has convinced her parents to go on a family trip to Antarctica before she heads off to boarding school.”

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.

For more information or to register, contact Moran at (662) 562-3277 or e-mail mmoran@northwestms.edu.
