DAMES WHO READ
Join us as we meet every six weeks to discuss a food-focused book. Our host selects a nonfiction or fiction book (not a recipe book), preferably one that is available in the library or can be purchased at a low price and leads a thoughtful discussion. All Dames are welcome. If you are interested in hosting or have any questions, contact Eileen Dykes at firstname.lastname@example.org
