Books and Bites
Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Are you an avid reader? Do you enjoy sinking your teeth into a good mystery or drama novel? Well, have we got a group for you!
The format for this group is simple: it is wide open! Anyone is welcome to read any or all of the books and attend any or all of the gatherings. If you can’t make a specific gathering (or don’t want to come to any of them), your comments can be provided and you are welcome to complete a ratings sheet remotely. Happy Reading!
Each month we will get together in person on the 3rd Wednesday at 1pm (or via email if necessary) to discuss and rate each book.
