Happy Hour Book Club

Second Wednesday of the month, 4:30 p.m.

The Happy Hour Book Club meets monthly, for one hour, to discuss a book that has been chosen by the group. We select our books in November for the following year. There is always a mix of fiction and non-fiction. Our discussions are casual and everyone is encouraged to participate.  For more details, please contact Jan Goodwin by email at gutwinsky@gmail.com or  Lynn Amstutz by email at lynnamstutz@yahoo.com
