BOOKS & BREWS: NOT YOUR MOTHER'S BOOK CLUB (ADULT BOOK DISCUSSION GROUP AT VARIOUS LOCATIONS)

This is a community for younger adults (and the young at heart). We will meet once a month to discuss books, films, and other "hot topics" at various venues throughout Shelby County. Watch this page for updates about times, dates, and locations. 

Each month there will be an optional book and/or film that we will discuss. Copies of these books will be distributed at the monthly meetings, but you'll need an Evergreen Library Card in order to check one of them out. Books will be processed through the Shelby County Public Library, but any Evergreen Library card will work. (In other words, a Greensburg Library card or a Greenwood Library card will work.)  Keep updated here or join the group's FACEBOOK page.
