Held two times each year at Newton Public Library, TALK (Talk About Literature in Kansas), is a program for those who love to read and discuss good books. Each TALK series is built around an entertaining and thought-provoking topic of interest to adult readers.

Discussion leaders and books for the series are provided by the Kansas Humanities Council.
