    George's Book Club is open to any faculty/staff member - we meet about once a month for dinner and book chats.  Our meetings are informal - please don't stress out about finishing the entire book - we have good discussions!  Some years we have also done a scholarship in recognition of a love of learning and literature for a graduating senior.  For more details, see Ms. Harper.
