Are you hosting your next book club meeting?

We've added TWO NEW titles to our 
Book Club in a Bag 

The Silent Wife 
by ASA Harrison 


The Dinner 
by Herman Koch.  

Trust me when I say either title will lead to a rather lively discussion!

All you need is your library card, 
your meeting location 
and Book Club in a Bag 
will do the rest...
(well, except for the 
wine and appetizers 
of course!)
