Unfortunately, our September book club was cancelled. However, we still wanted to discuss Most Likely with you! We chose Most Likely because the author, Sarah Watson, is the creator of The Bold Type. Also, we loved the premise of four best friends and one of them is destined to be President. 

FYI, our next virtual book club is on October 26th. For more information, check out the Facebook event page.

Our August 2020 book club pick! We discussed A Song Below Water last night at our virtual YA book club that we co-host with Bards Alley, an independent bookstore.

Our next book club meeting is September 21! We hope to see you there.
