BOOK CLUB: We will meet this coming Sunday, that is March 5th at Schuler’s Books and Music in Eastwood Town Center at high noon. We will discuss the Nicholas Sparks book we read and of course, vote on our next selection. If you can’t get enough Nicholas Sparks, this is the place for you, even if you are not technically a member, come out and chat. For those of you that do not share an interest in Nicholas Sparks, there is room for you as well; you can help select the next novel we will read. So join book club for a novel discussion, coffee, and voting on the next book, this Sunday at noon. See you at Schuler’s. (read through Friday 3-3)
