AfterHours book club

Starting in January, the AfterHours book club will meet twice in the middle of each month: on a middle Tuesday in the morning (9:30 – 11 a.m.) , and then the following middle Wednesday of every month at in the evening from 7 to 8:30 pm. Both meet ups are at Serendipity Books.

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, often with tie-in reads to the Washtenaw Reads winning selection, the Midwest Literary Walk, and even high school favorites.

Upcoming meetings:

December 11th, 2019 – ‘The Library Book’ discussion  – evening only discussion

‘The Library Book’, is a joyful read for the season. Described as ‘a sheer, irresistible delight’ this should be both a fun read and get-together.
