Listening Parties are an entertaining variation of the book discussion format, and anyone is welcome to attend. Librarian Michael Farley presents a theme for every program, whether it be a performer, a group, a time period or a particular album. There’s no need to do any homework ahead of time. Simply show up with curious ears, listen to some music, and talk about it with other attendees. Most of the discussions have centered on jazz, but they will also touch upon other genres as well. Listening Parties take place monthly on Thursdays at 7 p.m. from September to June (with a break in December).
