Cookie Day

Sun 1/28 @ 1pm
The (Occasional) Sunday Show & Share Book Club
Bring a TRAVEL CUP & a BOOK. We'll have coffee & oj for your cup!

Format: we'll all stand in a (sort of) circle and each have a few SECONDS to show our book. This is NOT the time to go on a soliloquy about your book. No. Do Not.

After everyone has a turn, we'll break from the circle part. You can talk to others about their books, look around at books or shop for more books, if you want. I'll kick everybody out at 2:30pm.

ALL are welcome - from tiny tots to venerable elders!
