You don't have to choose between book club and happy hour! Stout Stories is "reinventing the book club" with promises of great food, drinks, comfortable atmosphere, and great discussion on today's most intriguing books. Whether you're a milleni-"ale" or an older "vintage," come out and meet like-minded individuals. We're putting the "pub" in public library! Please read and drink responsibly. Ages 21 and up. To ensure seating, please register in advance.
