About this Book Club

This book club will be both social and educational. The books provided in this list are not all-encompassing, just some books I feel are relevant to what the group is working on and would like to read with books being routinely added as we continue expanding our libraries. Additions can be added by contacting Monica Fink @ 405.412.3594 or


Meetings are held once every month for discussion at the East Lansing Public Library. Exact dates, times, and locations will be determined based on what works best for most of the members at the end of the last meeting.

MET Book Club generally meets once a month at the East Lansing Public Library located at 950 Abbot Rd., East Lansing, MI 48823
