October book club

In October, we'll be reading The Universe versus Alex Woods by Gavin Extence.

As usual, it is avaialble online through Amazon.ca, Chapters (online and in stores) and in the VPL network.

It is also available for e-readers (Kindle, Kobo...)

We'll meet at Rockford, and start at 7pm, so feel free to arrive a little in advance to place your drink and food order and to meet the other members!

Book club newbie? A little nervous? No need to worry, we have a "book club how-to" guide for you!

    Hello ladies - just a quick last minute update. Two copies of next month's book (the 12 tribes of Hattie) will be up for grabs during our raffle tonight (I haven't received them just yet, but they're on their way). If you're interested, raffle tickets are $2 and I'll be going to each table to ask if you're interested. If you are, have your toonies (or loonies) ready : ) ! See you all tonight.
