NOBS Show and Tell

It’s the time of year for NOBS’ Show and Tell session. We all have our favorite books: a cherished childhood favorite, a book left to us by a wonderful friend, or a treasured copy of an old classic. Anything goes including the stories that go with the book. Either way, there’s always something to learn and some great books to discuss with fellow bibliophiles. Come join us!
