Brooker Book Club
Monthly Event - First Saturday of every month: 9:30 AM to 10:30 AM (EDT)
Join the Friends of Brooker Creek Preserve for the Brooker Book Club every first Saturday of the month. This club is geared towards adults. The theme is Florida. The book list includes novels by Florida authors; past and present, archeology, biography, politics and history. Please note that registration is required due to a limited amount of seats. Please meet in the Conference Room inside the Visitors Center. *Please note that books will not be provided for you.*
To ensure an enjoyable and positive discussion, please think of a question you would like to have the group discuss about the book for the month. These questions will serve as additions to those the host of the Book Club will prepare each month.
