Not the Bestsellers Book Club

...return to top


Public welcome. Our new book club was established for two reasons: first to give us (Inkwellians) an excuse to talk to one another about books, and second to highlight lesser known gems that won't appear on bestseller lists. Michelle and Kathleen welcome all readers to join our conversations about books. We’ll be meeting monthly in the Inkwell Events room. Complimentary refreshments will be served.
