The Other Wes Moore


Our book for June is going to beĀ The Other Wes Moore by Wes Moore. The discussion is on June 20th due to the fact that I have an out of state wedding on the 27th. So please mark that down!

As always if you have a friend who wants to join us, we have copies of the current discussion book behind the Circulation Desk on the 1st floor.
