Winter Book Group


From December through March the Winter Book Review Group meets in the HAH library on the third Saturday of the month at 11:00 am.  Volunteer reviewers make their own choices of what they would like to read and comment upon. You need not read the books yourself. The reviewers are doing that for you and then after hearing their review you can decide if you want to read it yourself. This program is open to the public as well as members and is a great way to spend a winter morning at HAH. Carolyn Gemake is our moderator.
