Roadtown Reads Book Club

The Shutesbury book club is a group of readers who enjoy reading and talking about books and more. We welcome everyone, from any town, whether you can make all the meetings or just one. Meetings are monthly from September to May, on alternating Monday and Wednesday evenings, in book club members’ homes. We read fiction and nonfiction. Book club information is posted on the RoadTown Reads Yahoo group. Interested readers can join at this URL
