We will be requesting a small donation at the door for the musicians and the library.
The Havana Book Club will meet at 6 pm at the Montour Falls Library. This month’s author is T.C. Boyle, who authored the following books: Water Music, The Women, Tortilla Curtain, East is East, and more recently San Migel. Readers are welcome to choose any of his works and join us for discussion.
