Webb Book Clubs

The Webb currently sponsors two active book clubs.  The afternoon group usually meets the first Wednesday of each month at 2:00 PM and the Evening Book Club usually meets the first Thursday of each month at 6:00 PM.  However, because of the July 4th holiday, the afternoon group will meet Wednesday July 11 at 2:00 PM and the evening group will meet Thursday July 12 at 6:00 PM.  The Webb provides the book(s) via an arrangement with the Transylvania County Library so book club members do not have to purchase the books.

For July:

The afternoon club will discuss Girl With A Pearl Earring written by Tracy Chevalier.

The evening group will discuss In A Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson.

Copies of both books are available for the July meetings.  Please join us!
