ESL Book Club

Conversation courtesy of Clker.comOur monthly ESL Book Club is meeting this coming Wednesday, 1/16/2019, at 3:30pm. What is an ESL Book Club? It's a group of people who speak English as their second language. We take a book, read it, and discuss it as a way to practice speaking and reading English. The latest book is always available at the front desk, and we spend 2-3 months on each title. Give us a call for more information at 281-391-3509.

Peek Into Someone Else's Life

The Long Haul by Finn MurphyHave you ever seen someone and thought, "I wonder what it would be like to be them"? Confession: I've always thought the life of a long-haul truck driver would be kinda cool. They're like the modern day version of the old ocean explorers. What things they'd see. What people they'd come across. Well, I have to wonder no more. I can read The Long Haul: a Trucker's Tales of Life on the Road by Finn Murphy.
