THE LATEST NEWS ABOUT AUNTIE'S BOOK GROUPS
Special Announcement: Two New Groups To Start
A new group - THE MYSTERY-THRILLER CLUB - will meet on the 4th Thursday of each month, from 6 to 7 p.m. If you like to read mysteries and thrillers, join us for the discussion of Rosarito Beach on February 27th, with author Mike Lawson. This will be a rare opportunity to talk with a nationally known author!
READING FOR WRITERS will begin in February, to meet on the 2nd Monday of each month, at 6:30 pm. The group will meet at Frankie Doodle's Restaurant near Dick's at Third & Division. If you would like to read and talk about books for writers, join us for dinner and a fun discussion. Bring your suggestions to the first meeting on Feb. 9th. Our first seletion for February's discussion is: Stephen King On Writing. This is usually available at Auntie's, and other local area stores should have it as well, or you may find a copy at the local library.
