Book Buzz: Pairings

So, “early next week” became “early two weeks from now…”  Sorry, folks.  However, I’ve got dates, I’ve got times, I’ve got titles…here’s what’s we’re going to be buzzing about in Lawrenceville this spring.

Each month we’ll meet twice to discuss two related titles: an old favorite and something a little more off-beat. Everyone’s welcome to come to one discussion – or the other – or both! Copies of each month’s titles will be available for check-out at CLP – Lawrenceville.
