Book Group
The Book Frog, Saturday, June 20 at 4pm
For our June selection we've chosen a book that, for many of us, will be a reread: To Kill a Mockingbird. It's an American classic, it's a book that has influenced countless people deeply and meaningfully, and it's a book that even more than fifty years on from its publication is ripe for discussion.

This discussion, as well, will prepare us for next month, when we'll read the much-anticipated second novel from Harper Lee, Go Set a Watchman, which will release on July 14th.

Join us! (BeckyJG)
