Book Brunch January 2024

A new year welcomed a new format for Book Brunch – in-person only in the fireplace room.  There was coffee, delicious snacks and lots of books shared.  Julie and I shared 10 books each and then heard from others what they have read recently, to create a nice list to start off the year with.  Our next Book Brunch will be Friday, March 15th at 10:30am.  Please register if you plan to come – so we have enough seats!
