 Book Club Meetings

The Happy Owl Book club meetings will be suspended from November through March for a winter break.

In lieu of having book club meetings, we have instituted a Book of the Month that can be purchased at 15% off the regular price.  Each of these books come highly recommended by a Happy Owl staff member.  These offerings will change each month so be sure to check back often.

For November, these are the chosen books:

Dan’s Pick: The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Richardson

Linda’s Pick:  The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald

Teresa’s Pick:  Winter in Paradise by Elin Hildebrand

 Gia’s Pick:  American Gods by Neil Gaiman
