*All Book Clubs are meeting virtually on Zoom for the foreseeable future, please check back for updates*

There are no official sign-ups or fees, but we do ask that you purchase the book from us in order to participate. You can join as many book clubs as you like, or you can hop around! Members will read the book selected in time for its meeting date. Discussions are casual.
