Join Our Book Club!

Do you enjoy curling up with a good book once in awhile? Have you ever finished a book and wished you had someone with which to talk about it? If so, you should check out the Northwest Houston Mothers & More Book Club!

The Book Club meets during the first Thursday evening of every month at a local restaurant or member's home for a light meal and a discussion of the previous month's reading selection. Members vote and decide the book list each year.

Email us for more information on where the Book Club meets.
