Books & Brews

Talk Books, Share Stories, Toast Friends

One of the best things about reading is connecting with people that love books and hearing how others relate to the stories and characters. Often by learning what someone else loves to read, we can discover more authors and connections across the genres.

We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at Decatur Brew Works, at 6 pm. Join us to chat about books (both the monthly pick & what you love to read) and enjoy a drink if you'd like.
