River Valley Page Turners (Book Club)

Do you like to read and enjoy lively discussions?

Every month, a member suggests a book for the group to read. The Book Club ensures it is available through the library or via a download.

It is a chance to read books you might have not thought of. Every fall, the Club reads a book by a New Brunswick author, and invite them to attend the meeting. It is a discussion with the writer’s point of view.

When: Second Wednesday of each month

Time: 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

Location:
 Brundage Point River Centre – 4 Ferry Road, Grand Bay-Westfield

How to join: Please contact Bev Day at councillorday@towngbw.ca
