    Cure for the Common Book Club

    Carmichael’s own booksellers will lead a discussion with some fresh ideas on how to choose books that are well suited for good discussions for your own book club or one of which you are a member. It will be a discussion panel type evening with plenty of brainstorming. Recommendations from staff will be given, and those will be available for purchase. Learn about the benefits you can reap when you join your book club with Carmichael’s registration program. Free books, door prizes, giveaways and refreshments will be available.
