What NOT to Read
Tuesday, April 23
7:00 PM / Fireplace
Are you tired of people telling you about all those wonderful books that you have to read? What about those awful books of which you are longing to share your hatred? Bring a book you hated to tonight’s off-site book discussion. Come prepared to share why your book is so awful that no one should ever read it. Comments should be thoughtful, but ruthless.
