Silent Book Club

9/1/2017 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Looking for a different type of book club?  At Silent Book Club, there's no assigned reading, no discussion guides, and all types of readers are welcome (audio books? e-readers? graphic novels? Bring 'em!). It's about taking time out of your busy schedule to simply relax and read. Put down your phone, pick up a book, and enjoy. The plan is to read for 60 ish minutes, and after that we can talk (if anybody's around/wants to) and eat lunch, or just continue reading. No real rules to speak of, just come and read! You can use our meeting room chairs, or bring a comfy camp/tailgaiting chair to set up. Join us on the first Friday of the month for some relaxation and the gift of reading. We hope you can join us!

11am-12pm: Silent Reading

12pm-1pm: BYOBL (Bring Your Own Bagged Lunch) and talk books with other book-lovers! We may feature a reading-related TED talk or other activity every so often.
