What we're about

Adults who love books and anything nerdy! Monthly book club for adults who have busy lives elsewhere. We understand work and kids keep us busy, but once a month we must cast aside all adulting duties and come together to share in a love of reading! Nerds of all types welcome!

Meets on weekends for an hour.

Our Facebook group ---> https://www.facebook.com/groups/357983271391441/

We rotate genres to encourage diverse reading and to include everyone. :) Then we vote on the book for that month based on submissions on a Meetup poll.
