Each month we will feature a different local author and all read the same book by that author. Then the author will attend our book club meeting to discuss his or her book! You can ask questions of the author, get your book signed and have the opportunity to buy more books by that author. These books will be given to you for free to read, since there usually are not enough copies in the library to check out. But you must register in the library. We meet the second Tuesday of each month.

Our next meeting is Tuesday, June 14th at 6:30pm in the Loft. We will be discussing the book The Bullybuster with author Clay Cormany.


Clay Cormany is the author of two YA books. The first, Fast-Pitch Love (Clean Reads, 2014), combines the angst and thrill of teenage romance with softball competition. The second, The Bullybuster (Kindle Direct Publishing, 2019), examines the harm of bullying as well as the consequences of revenge.

Before writing Fast-Pitch Love, Cormany spent over 25 years as a writer and editor for Ohio’s State Board of Education. His creative work has appeared in numerous central Ohio publications, including the Columbus Dispatch and
Spring Street, Columbus State Community College’s literary magazine. He has also edited numerous books, including a three-volume biography of Christopher Columbus and A Death Prolonged by Dr. Jeff Gordon, which received coverage in the New York Times and on PBS. Outside of writing, Cormany enjoys bicycling, running, and spending time with his grandchildren. He is a strong supporter of literary organizations in his community, including Thurber House and the Ohioana Library.
