The Unexpected Book Club with Rita Oberto
Second Monday of the month October 10, 2016 11:00 a.m.

The Unexpected Book Club meets on second Monday of the month at 11:00 a.m. Book Club reading, discussion and socializing can be a lot of fun. Sometimes it can be tricky to find a book that no one has read yet and everyone will enjoy.  Rita uncovers new books each month which may not be on your “to read” list. We will be discussing My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry by Fredrik Backman.
