Gibson's Bookstore reads The Tempest by William Shakespeare.

Each February, our book club not only discusses but reads aloud a play by the immortal Bard. We find that our understanding improves through performance. It's a lot of fun. We skip the exposition so we can get out at a normal time, and we all take turns reading the juicy bits so no one feels left out.

Our book club is open to all. We've chosen an eclectic, ambitious list of books for the coming year: join us for every meeting, or deal yourself in as the spirit moves you.

Most of these titles are in paperback, or should be by the time we'll read them, and they will all be discounted 25% from the publisher's price for the following year, whether you join us for meetings or not.

All meetings unless otherwise noted are on the first Monday of the month, and begin at 7:00, to give you time to have dinner and relax a bit first. Parking is free in the Capitol Commons garage and on the street, after 5 p.m...
