Your Choice Book Discussion Group

Tired of being forced to read a specific book just so you can attend a book group? We've got an answer for you.

Instead of assigning specific titles for this club, we decided to let you read your own choices, then come share your ideas with others. You may want to recommend one or more books, or you may want to let us know you thought a book is a real stinker. Either way, we'll be delighted to hear your comments.

The group meets on the 2nd Friday each month, at noon. You can bring your lunch, or a drink or a snack.

Come have some fun talking about one of everyone's favorite topics - BOOKS!
