The Book Club meets the second Thursday of each month at 4:30 p.m. The members take turns choosing a month to select a book. That person would then choose the location to meet (we meet at different restaurants in Yreka and occasionally at someone’s home). The person who selected the book would pay for appetizers for the group, and everyone pays for their own beverage. All members read the same book each month, and we discuss the book when we meet. We currently have about 8 members. I am currently leading the book club, and can be reached at 530-842-4291.
