Men's Book Club Redux

Are you looking for a new way to get out of the house in the evening, a fun, free place to escape for a while?

Then join the Evelyn Meador Library Men's Book Club right here in Seabrook. We will read about sports, politics, history, crime and making money. And we are open to suggestions for any other topics you may like. Our conversations are casual and you do not have to be a scholar to enjoy discussing what you read with other men.


Stop by the library to check out a copy of this month's selection, Lost in Shangri-La by Mitchell Zuckoff.
