Summer Book Club

Meets every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month (May-Aug), 1-3 p.m.
Join our book club this summer, as we read a book a month and discuss them every 1st & 3rd Saturday of the month here at the CWC. August's book is Kurt Vonnegut's classic satirical novel Slaughterhouse-Five. We’ll be focusing not only on the story and its implication for modern readers, but also on Vonnegut’s craft and what we can take from it to apply in our own writing.
Cost: Free. No registration required.

The full text of Slaughterhouse-Five is available for download as a Daisy zipfile. You can also check it out from the City Library or come into the CWC to read one of our copies.
