Please call Hana 738-0266 to make a reservation prior to Friday, June 4th. Apart from enjoying a pleasant meal, we will discuss Eriksdottir and The Secret Scripture, as well as our future plan and suggestions for summer reading. If you would like to exchange books in Chinese auction, bring a book of your choice wrapped as a present. Honestly, it is not meant to be a competition in wrapping artistry, it is only to make the book anonymous until the ceremonial unwrapping. Readers of the Evening Book Club are welcome to join us.


The Craft Group usually takes a break from June till later in the month of September.

Coffee morning dates and possible outings planned for the summer months will be posted after Canada Day. Do refer to Canada, Newfoundland and Labrador, and the Avalon tourism web sites for suggestions of day trips and summer festivals.
