The HiSTORY Book Club meets on the First Saturday of the month (unless it falls on a holiday) from 1-2:15 at the Monroe County History Center. Ours is a group for reading and discussing books that relate to history of all different periods, especially those that tie in to Indiana history in some way. We read a mix of fiction and non-fiction. Everyone is welcome to join - but RSVPs are appreciated so we'll be sure to have enough snacks on hand.
