The J Book Club

Best thing about being in a book club? Once a month you get to read a new book, get together with old and new friends, and have someone to talk to when you finish your book! Come read something you might not have otherwise and enjoy thoughtful discussions about your latest read!

Last Friday of the month | 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm | Free | Register
