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.”  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.
