B.A.M. (Books, Articles, Movies) Talk! Where friends new and old come together for an enjoyable night of energetic conversation. Our BAM Talk! group is an eclectic gathering of adults who get together on the 2nd Wed of the month sometimes on zoom, sometimes in person to chat about topics and titles. We’re very easy going. Whether you read/watch/listen to one or all the titles, you are welcome to join the fun and there are no pop quizzes!

On October 11th, Elysha Chang will join us to chat about her much-praised new release: A Quitter’s Paradise: A Novel. Elysha will talk about her book, answer questions, and do a short reading.
