Adult Book Club
The Adult Book Club’s reading choice for June is “the life-changing magic of tidying up: the Japanese art of decluttering and organizing” by Marie Kondo. With detailed guidance for determining which items in your house “spark joy” (and which don’t), this international bestseller featuring Tokyo’s newest lifestyle phenomenon will help you clear your clutter and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home—and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire.
If you are interested, stop by and pick up a copy.
The June meeting will be on June 5th at 10:00 AM. Please note the different time.
