Thursday, November 14: This month we're doing something different. We'll be attending Guardians of Detroit author Jeff Morrison's presentation in the Community Room at 7:00 pm. Fifteen seats will be set aside for our group. RSVP by contacting the Adult Reference Desk by phone at 248-618-7693 or stopping by next time you're at the library. If you wish to read the book before November 7, please either check out our copy or put a hold on it.
Thursday, December 12: Holiday potluck gathering - Bring a dish to pass - snack or dessert, homemade or store-bought - and tell us about the best book you read in 2019 (whether or not it was a Book Discussion group selection). At the end you'll have a typed-up list of everyone's favorites for when you're looking for something to read.
