Register here - Whether you've read the book in advance or just want to hear about a book and it's history, this event is for you.

Our book club leader, Gail Edwards will give a talk on a particular book each month - covering the book itself, the background on the book and more. She is looking at books that will be unique and potentially cover ground-breaking topics. While we let you know what the book is in advance, no one needs to feel that they must read it to participate. They may end up wanting to read the book after they hear more about it!

For those attending in the Center lunch will be served. Please let us know if you will be at the Center.
