DECONSTRUCTED BOOK CLUB @CENTRAL

A low-pressure, guilt-free variation on the book club! The Deconstructed Book Club does away with the traditional reading list: just bring a book or two that you would like to recommend to your book loving peers. All genres of fiction and non-fiction are welcome and encouraged!

Meets 7:00 – 8:30 pm, usually on the first Thursday of each month (some exceptions apply), in the Central Program Room. Please register online, or contact Danis Houser at dhouser@gp.lib.mi.us or 313-343-2074 ext. 212 for more information.
