Book Club October Pick: A Discovery of Witches

The Hudson Area Library Book Group has chosen to read A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness for their October meeting. Discussion will be held at the library on Wednesday, October 29 at 4:30pm. Stop by the Hudson Area Library or call 828-1792 to order a copy of the book.

Deep in the stacks of Oxford’s Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library. Diana has stumbled upon a coveted treasure lost for centuries-and she is the only creature who can break its spell.

All are welcome! Contact the library at 518-828-1792 or email Sharon Getty at for info.
