Like reading? Like learning about life in other places and times? We’ve got just the club for you! Join us for our Books Beyond Borders book club in which we’ll travel through time and place to better understand our present world. Each month, read the selected book (limited free copies available, otherwise check yours out at the library) and then we’ll meet to discuss it, sample some related food and maybe music, and do a fun related craft or writing activity. Occasional special guests will include the book’s author or a visitor from the culture or time we’ve read about.
In person outside the Pickleweed Library, weather and public health situations permitting.
