Bethlehem Book Club

c bb 14Jan2016 1We meet the second Thursday of each month at 7:30 a.m. We are in the process of locating a new place to meet—so stay tuned! For June, we will be meeting at Red Frog Coffee, 15 Ken Pratt Blvd #200, Longmont, 80501. Everyone is welcome! If anyone has any questions, recommended book suggestions, or would like to be added to the email list, please contact Deanna Hebbert at 303-808-0617 or Jenny Kelley at 303-651-6226.

 

We enjoy discussing many types of books and welcome all to join us. Below is a selection of books we have read recently and we always are looking for input on ideas to add to the list! Come join us whenever you can and check with the web site for the location. We occasionally change meeting places from one coffee shop to another—but coffee is always considered essential!
