Bring Your Own Book aka BYOB

Unlike most book clubs where everyone reads the same title, in BYOB you pick the book you want to read and share.  BYOB meets once a month to talk about books, old and new, and share reading recommendations. This is a great chance to learn about titles and genres you might not otherwise consider.  Whether you’re eager to chat up a new favorite, or just want to listen to the conversation, all are welcome to join! Looking for book suggestions?  Contact Christine @


Here are the dates, times, and links for each month:
