Frankly, My Dear, It’s A Big Book

Scarlett, Rhett and all the other famed characters of the historic epic will be discussed in the first of two meetings pertaining to Margaret Mitchell’s Pulitzer-Prize winning work when the group gathers tomorrow night (Tuesday, March 4). Start time is 7 p.m. Meeting place is in the store’s downstairs. During this meeting members will discuss the first half of the book. They will undertake the second half for their April meeting.

The boilerplate: The club meets the first Tuesday of the month. Participants receive 20 percent off selected titles. The club is free and open to the public.
