Notorious HBC

Join host and Malaprop’s bookseller Patricia Furnish to discuss a range of books across different periods of history. We’re creating a book club that tackles the challenging subjects, hence “NOTORIOUS.”

We meet on the 3rd Friday of every month at 7 pm. Our next meeting is Friday, December 15th, at 7 pm.
