Show & Tell Book Club

Meets Monthly

Last Thursday, 5:30-7:00pm

A no pressure book club where you get to choose!

Are you interested in joining a book club, but aren’t sure you would be interested in the selected titles? At the HML Show and Tell Book Club, you get to choose what you read! Each month we’ll pick a theme, you’ll choose a book fitting that theme, and at our meetings we’ll discuss what we read!

What if I don’t finish the book?

That’s ok! Even if you haven’t finished reading your chosen book you can still come to the meeting and discuss what you’ve read so far!

Can I talk about a book I’ve read previously if it fits the theme?

Oh course! We want to hear all about what you’ve read, it doesn’t matter when you read it!

Do I have to talk about what I’ve read?

If you would feel more comfortable just sitting back and listen to what others have to say about their books that’s completely fine!

Upcoming Themes:

February- Love

March- Change

April- Tearjerkers

May- Bravery

June- Kindness

 HML Writers Group
Saturdays from January 13th to May 18th
1:30-3:30

The goal for HML Writers Group is to help writers be comfortable with themselves, with their own styles and their own needs. We’re not all novelists, or poets, or short story writers. We’re not all speed writers; trying to go-go-go on a prompt for ten minutes isn’t everybody’s writing style. And that’s all right. Writers bring what they’re working on to read out loud, or pass out copies for critique. More often than not, most of the meeting time is devoted to the act of writing, with timers set and prompts given as a springboard for a story or poem to take flight.

To register, email hmlwriters@gmail.com.
