The Wabaunsee Book Club
is a group of women who get together once a month for light-hearted, fun discussions of books, newspapers, and favorite authors.

Once a month we'll meet in one-another's homes, with a title we've picked the previous month, and presumably read.  Along with this, you can bring a book you've enjoyed reading to share; and remember, we're not working on our PhDs here (Well, OK, one of us is;)  we're just having a couple of hours of fun.  And food.

If you want to join such a book club in Wabaunsee, email us!  Even if you don't want to read books & all, join us anyway; we'll vote you in as WBC Curmudgeon.  You can pretend it's a Garden Club.  Bring a friend.
