VIRTUAL HOLIDAY LUNCHEON & BOOK EXCHANGE

Date: Wednesday, December 16, 2020 from Noon – 1:30pm

Audience: Open to the public

This year, we’re mixing up our 6th annual Holiday Luncheon and Book Exchange! We know that everyone would love to be together, eat great food, and do a White Elephant style book exchange. However, we love you too much to expose you to COVID-19, so we’re changing the celebration a little bit this year.

Instead of the money going toward your lunch, it will go toward a book that we’ll read and review together in our 2021 Book Club series! We’ll send the book directly to your home, so make sure that you enter the correct shipping address when you register. The money will directly support the author and you’ll have something to read over the holiday season. Yay!

Over the lunch time, we’ll hear from a few people about our members’ accomplishments in 2020, and recognize some very special members. Then we’ll break up into chat rooms and have some really fun discussions all about books!
