Brooker Book Club
Monthly Event - First Saturday of every month: 9:30 AM to 10:30 AM (EDT)
Tarpon Springs, FL
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 for 2014 is Science. Each quarter we will review a biography, a novel and a non-fiction book related to one of the following four areas: outer-space, the atmosphere, our oceans and terra firma. Please note that registration is required due to a limited amount of seats. Please meet in the Conference Room inside the Visitors Center. *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.
