BRIT Reads Book Club

If you love to read and you're passionate about botany, natural history, sustainability, and other similar topics, then join us the third Monday of each month for the BRIT Reads Book Club. This informal group meets from noon - 1 pm in the BRIT Library. Bring your lunch and bring a friend and come tell us what you thought about our book of the month. No time to read but still want to hear what people have to say about a particular book? No problem! We'd love to have you!


This year has flown by, and believe it or not, we've wrapped up the first year of the BRIT Reads Book Club. Many, many thanks to all who helped make it so much fun! Take a look at the books that we've selected for 2017 and, if you're interested, come join the conversation! 


For more information please contact Laura Venhaus by email or at 817.546.1844.
