Second Monday of the month September 12, 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. September's title is The Woman in the Dunes.
