Just for Fun Book Club

(aka The Not-James-Joyce-or-Leo-Tolstoy Book Club) Meets the fourth Tuesday of the month from 7:15-8:15 pm.

Each month we'll read a book guaranteed to NOT give us brain strain or nightmares. Although we'll get some food for thought, our primary purpose for reading will be pleasure!

January 27, 2015: 44 Scotland Street by Alexander McCall Smith
