Tales & Talk Book Discussion Group

Membership is open to all adults who can commit to attending regular discussion meetings. The group meets 6 times a year on the 2nd or 3rd Thursday of September, October, November, March, April and May. One of the groups meets in the morning and the other in the evening. Both groups will read the same book.

The books to be discussed will be available to group members to borrow or to purchase.
