Book Lover's Club Tonight
Back by popular demand, it is The Berwyn Library's Book Lover's Club, featuring me, Kathy, and you, the book lover, at Olive or Twist!
Come join us as we moderate a discussion by you, about the books which are captivating you at the moment. Share your favorite titles, listen to what others have to say about their reads, and go home with a list compiled by us of everything that was discussed.
The idea is that this is a no pressure place way to share books with like minded people. It is part book discussion, part social club...all fun. The discussion goes from 7-8:15 and then we move to the bar to encourage people to mingle, meet, and continue sharing.
So come and join us. But please, give us a call first. We are trying to be better prepared for the crowds this time. 708.795.8000 ex 3005.
If you can't make it tonight but want to join us at a future Book Lover's Club, we will always meet on the final Tuesday of odd numbered months. Huh? Yeah blame me on this one that was my cute idea. What it means for you normal calendar carrying citizens is that we will gather again on November 29th (same place and time).
