Event description


Meet with other book-minded people while enjoying a pint (or two!) to socialize and talk BOOKS!

We're a book club at Wissahickon Valley Public Library in Blue Bell. We gather at a local restaurant in our library's service area (Ambler Borough, Lower Gwynedd and Whitpain Townships).

We meet every other month on the second Tuesday. Upcoming dates:

Tuesday, January 8, 2019 - Educated by Tara Westover
