 in a new

BOOK CLUB?

A new book club will be meeting at the Aurora Public Library!  This group will be structured a bit differently than many groups.  Rather than reading and discussing the same book, each person who comes is asked to talk about (and, if possible, bring) a book that you are currently reading or have recently read.  What is the book about?  Why did you like or dislike the book?  Where and when is it set?  What did you find interesting?  New members are always welcome! The next meeting will be:

May 23, 6:00 pm
