Whitecourt Bookies

Alberta Book Clubs

The Whitecourt Bookies have been meeting for about five years! We have 10 members; a few have moved on recently and we've picked up some new members! We meet every 3-6 weeks - the person buying the book has the meeting and provides munchies and beverages! We are compiling a list of recipes also from our meetings. We pick books based on many different criteria. This list is mostly complete with some ratings for books and years we read them in.
