Books N' Brew - Tuesday, August 25th @ 6 P.M.
Catch up with what other readers are enjoying over a cup of coffee! Unlike traditional book clubs, there are no assigned books. Instead, read what you like and then choose how you share your reading experience. This adults-only reading group meets at Mugs Coffeehouse on the 4th Tuesday of every month at 6 P.M.
Check out what we've been reading:
The Resistance pits a small group of resistance fighters against a powerful and corrupt government. The resistance has launched a series of bold and daring missions to bring the government to its knees. Unfortunately spies have infiltrated the resistance ranks, ready to sabotage the carefully crafted plans. Even a single spy can take down a resistance mission team, choose your teams carefully or forever lose your chance for freedom. The Resistance artfully balances pure deduction elements with the social elements into a game that creates the adrenaline filled moments of high stakes poker in a full interactive and social event.
