AfterHours book club

The AfterHours book club meets the second or middle Wednesday of every month at Serendipity Books from 7 to 8:30 pm.

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:
