Book Club meets on one Wednesday evening a month to discuss a selected book.  Join us as we have a great time analyzing the books and hanging out with friends. Treat yourself to a glass of wine and delicious refreshments.  The next reading book is determined by a democratic process in which members of the club promote a book of their choice.  Book of February 2017 - "The Moon and Sixpence" by W. Somerset Maugham.

Based on the life of Paul Gauguin, The Moon and Sixpence is W. Somerset Maugham's ode to the powerful forces behind creative genius.
