Our October meeting to pick books for 2016 was a success: we selected 12 titles with a nice range of themes, plus a couple of back-ups just in case obtaining any turned out to be problematic. Valerie is working on the final order in which we'll read these, but has already picked the order for January, February, March, and April. These four selections are ALREADY IN STOCK at Old Books on Front Street, for those of you who'd like to get a head start.
Book Club Members receive a discount on book club purchases.

Below are the names of the books we'll read in 2016:
