Leader: Shirley Wells
This group meets the second Tuesday of each month to discuss classic works by great authors—modern classics as well as the old gems. Retired English-teacher-turned-Watermark-bookseller Shirley Wells will be leading the discussions. And be sure to "Like" us on our Facebook page--Watermark Classic Book Club.
A Short Introduction to Classic Book Club:
The Classic Book Club reads books that are considered "classics"--ones that have withstood the test of time, whether that time period is over 200 years or 30 years. We especially love discovering "forgotten classics" and finally tackling those books that have been on our To-Be-Read List. A new visitor to the Classic Book Club can expect both light-hearted and serious discussions of that month's selection, as well as lots of laugher, conviviality, and "what else are you reading?" conversations.
