Book Talk Tonight

An online chat about what books you are reading. These chats are held weekly via Facebook. You can talk about any book you’ve recently read. Tell us if you liked it, hated it, or recommend it to others. Comment on other people’s posts. And, get great ideas for new books and authors to read! The chats are from 7:30-8:30, but are on a different night each week. Watch our Facebook page to find out when the next one will be held.
