2020-08-10 Virtual Program - WPL Virtual Book & Movie Club (adults)

Join us for a new, different kind of book club.  Instead of everyone reading one specific book -  join us for an informal chat about the movies, books or tv shows you have seen or watched recently that you loved.  Or, tell us what and why you strongly disliked something.  This is a great way to connect with other readers and get new book recommendations!  For adults age 18 + . 


Registration is required.

This program will be held on Zoom.  Registration is required.  On the day before the program we will email you the Zoom link to the meeting.
