Silent Book Club      Thursday Jan 19 5:30 – 7pm
What is a silent book club? It’s a very simple idea – Silent Book Club is about taking time out of your busy schedule to simply relax and read whatever you want to read, and you get to talk to other people about books (if you want to, or you can just keep reading). Learn more about silent book clubs at silentbook.club.
Grab a book and join us! Light refreshments will be provided.
