AfterHours book club

Our December meeting will be over Zoom. Register (for free) through Eventbrite to receive the zoom link.

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!

Upcoming meetings:

December 9 – ‘All American Boys‘ by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely and ‘Long Way Down‘ by Jason Reynolds (a two book selection)
