Dewey Delights Book Chat

Date: 04/30/2021
Time: 10:30 am-12:00 pm

Join our nonfiction book challenge, and read one book from each of the Dewey Decimal sections each month. In April, in anticipation of being able to travel safely again, we’d love to hear about your favorite books in the Dewey 900s, a broad category encompassing history, geography, and travel guides. Whose remarkable journeys did you find inspirational? What is your dream destination? See if you can find and share with us your own Dewey Delights! Please register here to be emailed the Zoom link the day before the program.
