The Evening Book Group meets on the third Thursday of the month throughout the year in the Fireside Room at 7 PM.  The only requirement is that you read, or attempt to read, the monthly selection.  Feel free to come to any or all of the meetings.  We welcome newcomers and hope you find the selections interesting.  Join us for a lively and informative discussion!  Questions?
