  • 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM

TBE Book Club is meeting hybrid! Please see registration information below.

Gather with other book lovers to discuss a book chosen a couple of months before a meeting. The group typically meets the last Wednesday of each month. Our Book Club is a warm and dynamic group of people who meet once a month to share and discuss good reads, expand their perspectives, and get to know one another through lively discussion. All are welcome!

May’s book of choice is a Novel by James McBride, The Heaven and Earth Grocery Store.

Registration: If you would like to join us in person, feel free to drop in at 7:30. If you will be participating online, please reach out to Trina Reinach, [email protected] to register for any of the Book Club online meetings. This event will also take place through a video conference call. Pre-registration is required. If you’re new to Zoom, watch a tutorial or read written instructions on how to join a Zoom video call.
