Membership is open to anyone who is interested. We don't expect you to come to each meeting, but hope you will. Help us choose the books we read, but don't feel obligated to read every book we choose. We want this to be a fun experience for everyone. The goal is to promote literacy and community building. Get to know your neighbors over your common love of the written word.
Due to lack of participation via livejournal, the club is now run via e-mail.
