When a father goes missing, his family's desperate search leads them to question everything they know about him and one another.

This book group meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 5:30 pm (except July).  Sam will pick a shortlist of books to choose from for the next discussion to be voted on. 

Haven't finished the book?  Don't worry - come anyway!

Join Dawn and our amazing group of participants for the Cook the Book program. Come in and choose a recipe from this month's cookbook and make it to bring to the gathering. You bring your own flatware, plate, glass, etc.

It's super fun. Come sign up for your recipe today!
