Join the Readers’ Circle, MML’s long running fiction book club, the last Thursday of each month at 7pm for a lively discussion of each month’s selected title.
This Spring our theme is “Autobiographical Fiction.” Each story is a fiction for sure, but the author draws on their own life experiences to inform the narrative of the plot.
