BRIT Reads Book Club

If you love to read and you’re passionate about botany, natural history, sustainability, and other similar topics, then join us for the BRIT Reads Book Club. This informal group meets from noon – 1 pm in the second floor Oak Conference Room at BRIT.  Bring your lunch and a friend and tell us what you thought about the book of the month.

No time to read but still want to hear what people have to say about a particular book? No problem! We’d love to have you listen, learn, and participate.
