Titles on Tap

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015 at 7:30 pm @ Napper Tandy’s

TOT_matTitles on Tap is a social book group for readers in their 20s and 30s and for the young at heart. We go in for stories that are shaken, not stirred, and we don’t mind taking our love of lit outside the library walls. Titles on Tap meets once a month in the left-hand bar of Napper Tandy’s to eat, drink, be merry, and discuss the latest reading selection. Visit our website and follow us @titlesontap to learn more. Our book for May will be The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes; copies are available at the Reference Desk. Pick up a copy, read it, and join us on 5/26 @ 7:30!
