[Zoom Event] Auntie's AM Book Group
We are delighted to be discussing a beautiful book at this fall season Zoom meeting of the Morning Book Club. We hope you can join us to visit with other readers as we talk about Overstory by Richard Powers.
Those on our regular mailing list will receive the Zoom link on Monday night (7th). Otherwise, you may request the link by emailing me at email@example.com. Also, if you are unfamiliar with Zoom and would like assistance, please let me know.
