Wonderland Book Club, facilitated by Alice Osborn, NC Writers Network Co-Sponsor
Join us the last Friday of every month to discuss literary fiction and selected nonfiction. I read like a writer, so this group is especially attuned to aspiring writers. I believe you need to read a lot of good books before you can write them!
Where: We meet at Center for Excellence 3803-B Computer Dr., Raleigh, NC 27609
Here’s the MeetUp Link
