Wednesday Afternoon Book Discussions
The Wednesday Afternoon Book Discussions at the Merrick Library, NY, have been around for a long time, but they really took off when librarian Carol Ann Tack began leading them six years ago. Since then the group has grown from about ten participants per meeting to over thirty. And they are a dedicated bunch - coming to meetings in snow and sleet and heat for great conversation and camaraderie.
