For bookshop author events, the best way to secure a spot is to purchase the book at Wild Geese Bookshop. Events at Franklin College are free and open to the public. Here’s an image of upcoming author events planned thus far. Date and location information are in the calendar of events listed below.
Book Club lasts exactly one hour, is casual and is open to all. You don’t have to finish the book to attend. There’s no requirement to attend all meetings. Just come when it works, enjoy nice people and good conversation. Book Club typically meets in the shop on the third Thursday of every month at 7 pm, but there are exceptions. Please check the date in advance.
Here are the remaining Book Club picks for the year. Dates and locations are in the calendar of events listed below.
