Virtual Book Nook

$54

with Shila Cook, Gorham Adult Education

Calendar Jun 29, 2021 at 6:30 pm

Come join me, Shila Cook, for Gorham Adult Education’s virtual book club! This nine week book club will read three texts and meet four times. The first time we ‘meet’ we will be getting to know each other, discussing our opinions of the texts on first glance, and going over how the other three meetings will go. What better way to enjoy the kind of easy connection that only books can create, then from the virtual comfort of our own homes? The cost of the course includes the first book that will be shipped to you! So the big question: What are we going to be reading? That is up to the club. Once you register you will receive an email from me asking you to pick your top 5 choices, and we will be reading the three that get the most votes!

Tuesdays 6/29, 7/20, 8/10 and Wednesday 9/1, 6:30pm - 7:30pm, virtual, $54
