RPL Evening Book Club

5/22/2024 @ 6:00 PM

Join us as we read "Counterfeit" by Kirstin Chen. This book is swift, surprising, and sharply comic. Counterfeit is a stylish and feminist caper with a strong point of view and an axe to grind. Books are available at the circulation desk. Digital e-books and e-audio are available on Hoopla. Any questions, please contact the reference desk.
