We are an easy-going group of people who want an excuse to get out of the house more, and talk about books, eat some food, drink some drinks, do some book swapping, etc. Our meetings take place on the first Monday of each month, at Forbes Library in Northampton. We meet downstairs, in the Community Room, at 7 pm. Our friendly librarians reserve the following month's book selection; just ask at the desk. The library lets us have snacks, so feel free to stop off at Haymarket or wherever. We always have cookies or brownies or something yummy!
Some months, we also have a social and/or book swap, on the 3rd Monday. Book choices are generally contemporary fiction, with the occasional non-fiction thrown in. All are welcome, please be respectful and queer/lgbt-friendly
