Branigan Book Club
The Branigan BookClub (BBC) meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm in the Staff Conference Room on the 2nd floor. For months with more than one book listed, you choose which one you want to read (or you can read them both). We’ll spend most of the time that month discussing the one the majority of those there read. Time permitting, we’ll also have a short review of the other by someone who read it. For more information contact (575) 528-4001 or firstname.lastname@example.org. When e-mailing please put BBC in the subject line.
