Weekly Book Club

As books bring out the thoughts and personal experiences of their readers, book clubs can be a great way to see the world through someone else’s viewpoint. Our first meeting will be used to brainstorm a list of books participants are interested in, decide which book we will read first, and establish a pace for our club.  Registration is required but the club is free!  Participants are responsible for obtaining their own copy of the current book being read.  If you need assistance in obtaining a book, please reach out to Carmen Vallez 708-749-4900 X12.
