What we're about

This is a co-ed bookclub that will meet once a month, at a restaurant in the area, and discuss one book per month. While the meetups will happen primarily in the Edgewater/Andersonville/Rogers Park area, it isn't limited to people who live in those areas; all are welcome! 
Books will be selected through a nomination and voting process (via the polling system on Meetup) and provided three months at a time so folks (especially those who like to use the library) have a chance to find and read the books.
