Have you ever wanted to be in a book club where everyone just got together and talked about the book they’re currently reading, the one they just finished, or the one that made an impact on them? If you answered yes, then this is the book club for you!

Prepare to talk about a book (or two) that made you happy, made you cry, made you stay up late to finish it or even one that you just plain hated.

Refreshments will be served.

Ask your librarian or click here for more information.
