This event is free and open to the public, all are welcome, newcomers are encouraged!

Most of these titles are in paperback, or should be by the time we'll read them, and they will all* be discounted 25% from the publisher's price for the following year, whether you join us for meetings or not.
All meetings unless otherwise noted are on the first Monday of the month, and begin at 7:00, to give you time to have dinner and relax a bit first. Parking is free in the Capitol Commons garage and on the street, after 5 p.m...
