Staff Picks: Books on Tap

Books on Tap is a book club for people who don’t want to be told what to read.  We meet the third Thursday of the month at 6pm a rotating location of local breweries and pubs to talk about all things books.  Below is a list of (almost) all the books we talked about.

The next meeting is Thursday, July 18 at Trinken Brewing Co., and is open to readers of all genres and styles.
