    Hello everyone! I am excited to introduce Page Turners, the NCSLMA Grown-Up Book Club!

    This idea grew from Brew Crew (if you're not attending Brew Crews, you really should - we talk about a LOT of stuff). We brainstormed and thought this format could work best for our members.  

    This a crowd-sourced book club. We will meet monthly on the 3rd Saturday of each month at 9:30am with a new book at each meeting. The book titles will be submitted and voted on by people who sign up. Majority rules. :-)

    The meeting schedule will be as follows:

    • June  15, 2024 - The Soul of an Octopus by Sy Montgomery

    • July 20, 2024- The Many Lives of Mama Love by Lara Love Hardin

    • August 17, 2024- The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V. E. Schwab

    The link for our Google Meet will be in your confirmation e-mail. 

    Please visit the Page Turners webpage at ncslma.org/pageturners for information and for the discussion forum. Contact Book Club Coordinator Jennifer Long with any questions.
