This & That Book Club 2017
Are you a mystery buff? Sci-fi fan? Horror aficionado? This & That Book Club is for you. Each month, we will read a book from a different fiction genre and get together for a lively discussion. Don’t like a particular genre? Give it a try, or skip the meeting that month - the goal is to have fun! 

When? We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 7 pm, in the meeting room at the Grand Forks Public Library. 
Multiple copies of the book club selections will be available at the Grand Forks Public Library and may be requested online or in person.
