Classic Novels Book Club

Northside, 4th Wednesdays, 3:30pm

What defines a classic novel? Is it time, quality, or that indefinable something that makes us want to read a book over and over? Read something you consider classic and we'll discuss what makes a book special and which ones to add to our bucket lists. Led by Cathy Polovina.

Graphic Novel Book Club

Southwest, 1st Mondays, 6pm

Come discuss your favorite graphic novels or manga. Talk with the group about artists, writers, or whatever else you like about sequential art.  No registration, no specific books to read.

We have so much to discuss!
