    Come share a coffee with your fellow book lovers and talk about what you've been reading lately!

    Unlike a book club, we don't expect everyone to have read the same book and to dive into its intricacies. This is just an occasion to kick back and get new recommendations from your neighbors... or warnings about not-so-enjoyable books (as well as movies, TV shows or albums)!

    Registration is required, but drop-in attendees will be considered the day of the event, depending on capacity.
