The Bookstore Book Club

October 25th at 7:00 PM

Would you like to inspire a lively conversation at your next book club meeting? The Bookstore's Book Club used the list of 100 books on the PBS Great American Read list as inspiration for what to read next.  We will be reading Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe for October.  Please call if you would like to join us.  We meet the 4th Thursday of almost every month.  We will not meet in November or December due to the Holidays.
