We encourage you to register early for monthly History Readers' Circles, whether you've come to previous sessions, or whether this will be your first one. (Space is limited to 12 participants per month.)

Fairfield resident John Beghtol, who taught history at the Centerville High School for 10 years, will facilitate the group discussions. Mr. Beghtol received the Iowa Teacher of the Year Award in 1971, and ranked fifth as a contender for National Teacher of the Year. His passion for history and love of reading inspired this program.

Those who pre-register will gather to discuss whatever history books they are reading, and light refreshments will be served. Bring whatever history book you are reading (even if you’re in the middle of the book) and enjoy a spirited dialog. In a readers’ circle, conversation inevitably covers the books brought plus other topics, so everyone walks away with inspiration for further reading.

Books about local, national, and international history are welcome. There is no charge for this program.
