This month will be the perfect month to check it out as a first timer as we won’t have a designated book to come in and discuss. This session will be a post holiday book exchange party where we’ll have appetizers and then a book exchange with each other. We’re asking that all participants bring one wrapped book from home to exchange with another in hopes of finding new titles to read. Plus, we will now be meeting an hour earlier at 6:00PM instead of the traditional 7:00PM.
