AfterHours book club

The AfterHours book club meets twice in the middle of each month:

  • on a middle Tuesday in the morning (9:30 – 11 a.m.)
  • on a middle Wednesday in the evening (7 to 8:30 p.m.)

The book club is open to regular clock-work attendees or occasional drop-ins alike. No sign-up is needed, no purchases are necessary, just stop by ready to discuss the latest read.

The selections vary in genre and length. They are often tie-in reads with the Washtenaw Reads winning selection, the Midwest Literary Walk, and even high school favorites.

It’s always fun!
