Reader's Haven Adult Book Club- 1st Meeting

May 12 2015 7:00 pm
May 12 2015 8:00 pm

The club's very first meeting on Tuesday, May 12th, is going to be a general meet and greet where I can get to know everyone interested in joinging the book club. We will talk about your personal reading interests. I will take this information into consideration while I set up the club reads. I hope there are some interested parties out there reading to expand their reading horizons! I am greatly looking forward to meeting all of you and creating this book club together.

Also, feel free to check out the book club's companion blog! Authored by Barb Posinger. The blog will include discussions of the books the club is reading along with some other valuable resources in cluding award lists, inspiring literary quotes and other book related resources and websites. The blog can be accessed here: http://readershavenbc.weebly.com/
