Books with bite

At our monthly Cover to Cover Book Group we’ll be discussing Books with Bite on creatures of the night. In other words, we’ll be talking about VAMPIRE and WEREWOLF books. Stop by, grab some snacks, and talk about books with others. The book group will meet on Tuesday, October 14 at 5:30pm at the Hebron and Josey library. I hope to see you there!
