Afterwords Book Club

Enjoy an evening of good company, tasty nibbles and spirits, and great conversation. New members are always welcome (ages 21+). Join us at the August meeting when, as inspired by the “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society” book club format, we’ll each read a different fiction title (try and choose something new to you as well!) of our choosing and discuss the merits of said book with the group. Think of it as a book report for grown-ups. 🙂
