Whether you're a fan of the classics or not even sure what counts as 'classic, we invite you to join us on the third Thursday of each month in our Honore Community Room to discuss a new novel. Pulling from various 'Greatest Books of All Time' lists, each month we will dive into a classic literary gem. Discussion will include our thoughts on the plot, characters, themes, and more! Please be sure to read the monthly book BEFORE the club meeting!
