Parent Book Club: Friday, August 19 at 9:15 am
The Parent Book Club, open to parents of all nationalities, is having the first meeting of the year on Friday, 19 August at 9:15 to discuss The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo. At 384 pages, this will still be a manageable read in a week’s time! Please join us.
“With its gripping tangles of plot and engaging characters, this truly compelling read is sure to garner much well-deserved attention.” Julie Trevelyan for Booklist
We are very lucky to have several volunteers who assist us with everything from ordering to shelving, but we are always happy to have more community members coming in to assist.
