A new group is in town for book discussions, trivia, and more! Meet us at Ballydoyle Irish Pub (5157 Main St.) the third Thursday, every other month.

This time we're discussing Winter's Bone by Daniel Woodrell. When 16-year-old Ree Dolly learns that her poverty-stricken family are about to lose their home, she sets out on a desperate attempt to find her bail-skipping father.

Copies are available to pick up and read beforehand from the Ask Us Desk. Don't have time to read it? That's Ok! Grab a drink and chat with us anyway. Registration is not required, just drop by.
