Silent Book Clubs are an international thing. You can help found one in Wilmington, NC!
Our first meeting was Sept 9, and it was VERY silent because nobody showed up but me. I had a lovely time reading by myself. 10 people signed up for this newsletter, however, so I know you're out there. Hope to read silently with some of you on Monday!
Next Meeting: Monday, November 18 6:00 - 7:30 pm Main Library, 201 Chestnut Street
