Meet, Greet, Drink and Eat

Join us at O'Reilly's Cure for our first Books On Tap book discussion group meeting! Besides perhaps sampling some great food and beverages, our agenda will be to meet each other and figure out what kinds of books we're all interested in. We'll have some suggestions to get the group started, but this will be a group-led effort going forward.

Though not required, please use this link to sign-up and indicate your reading preferences. This will help us gather together some good options for our December read!
