Book Lovers Monthly Book Swap & Gab Session

Bring one or more books that you have read and swap with others for ones you haven't read.

If you don't have a book to trade, just come and enjoy the lively book-related conversation and excellent food at La Madeleine's. Go to La Madeleine's website to view the menu.


La Madeleine's offers scrumptious baked goods, french food, espresso, wine, beer, desserts, and all kinds of yummy things.


We have reserved the private dining room in the back.
