The Arts Alliance of Greater Waynesboro hosts the first Sunday of each month from 1:30-3:00 pm a Community Book Club. Do you enjoy reading books with friends, and then getting together to discuss them? Each month our Book Club gets together and shares thoughts on one of 2017’s New York Times Best Seller’s list.

Would he please take her down to the San Antonio region and return her to her closest living relatives, an aunt and uncle?
