What we're about

This is a book club that will meet on the third Tuesday of the month in or around West Hartford. If you love to read and would like to meet with other adults monthly to discuss books and share a meal, join us! I started this group because there were only Meetup book groups for people 50+ in West Hartford, so I'm inclined to say this group will be for 20s-40s, though I don't want to exclude anyone who's interested.
