First Thursday Book Club

Join us June 1st for a lively discussion of "Pachinko" by Min Jin Lee. I guarantee the lively part as this is a group of incredibly intelligent and funny women who do not hold back! 

This was my favorite book of 2016~ Ten years in the making, Pachinko is an incredible tale of a four generation Korean family in Japan. Min Jin Lee deserves every excellent review she is getting for this book and the prizes that it is sure to be awarded.
