The Book Club will meet 4 times in July and August – every other Tuesday at 3:30 PM- at the picnic tables on the north deck. During inclement weather, we will meet inside the Schoolhouse.
Charlotte at Parry Sound Books http://www.parrysoundbooks.com/ will stock all the titles. Books can be ordered on their website and will be delivered by mail or can be picked up in person.
Please join us for the discussions, which are very informal and lots of fun, whether you have read the book or not. If you would like to be included in the emails sent out about book selection and other matters concerning the discussions, please contact: Libby Stratton
