Silent Book Club

Facilitated by Lesley McCollough

Meets the last Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm

We host the Tulsa chapter for this global book club phenomenon. It’s a book club for introverts — bring your own book and read quietly to yourself for an hour without reading alone. Or if you need someone to chat with about that “OMG!” twist, the book you just finished, or what to read next, you’ll have a community of readers (and our MCB facilitator) who will be there when needed.  

Upcoming Meetings:
February 28
