Notorious HBC

Join host and Malaprop’s bookseller Patricia Furnish to discuss a range of books across different periods of history. This book club tackles the challenging subjects where there are few heroes, if any, and the stories are unvarnished, complex, and surprising. Please scroll to the current month and year to see what the club is reading now. 

We meet on the 3rd Thursday of every month at 7 pm.  For the next several months, the group is meeting via Zoom. Please email patricia@malaprops.com if you are interested in joining this club.
