What we're about

The mission of North DFW Broader Horizons Book Club is to explore different genres and expose ourselves to variety of perspectives through honest discussion. The idea is to have very different monthly genres through out the year, where the Members nominate the best examples of each genre and then we all vote on the book for the month. If you're tired of reading the same old stuff and want to broaden your reading horizons, then give us a shot! Who knows, you might stumble upon a book you didn't know you'd like!

We meet every 2nd Sunday of the month from 4 - 6 pm at the Panera Bread located at 1804 Precinct Line Rd, Hurst, TX 76054.
