and more straight to your home computer. All you need to get books from home is Internet

Let's face it -- we are all going stir crazy with the weather these days.  A fun, free way to get out of the house and socialize with your neighbors is to attend one of our many book club offerings!  Just this week we'll be meeting to discuss Richard Power's Generosity on Thursday, 2/18 at 7:30.  Generosity is a fast-paced novel that focuses on an abnormally cheerful woman and the men who try to control and understand her.
On Tuesday, 2/23, at 6 p.m. the Urbane Book Club will discuss Just Friends by Robyn Sisman, a fun chick lit novel that will no doubt lead to a lively discussion and advice and anecdotes about love lives.
