The Boomers & Beyond Book Club meets on the second Wednesday each month in the Valerie Jaye Hall, from 10.30am-12.30pm.
Every month, someone chooses a book for the group to read and writes a short review. Everyone then reads the book and come together to discuss their impressions and thoughts, which often leads to some interesting dialogue.
On occasions throughout the year, the group will also invite authors to speak about their latest book.
Please note we are currently full. If interested in joining, please contact Carole on 0412 266 689.
