Five years ago, my friends started a book club. But since that inaugural gathering, we have yet to hold another one.
Part of the reason might be that the first book we chose was Ulysses

The event is free---though the TC asks that you reserve your spot by calling 303-322-1965 x2739---and wine and snacks are provided.
