The club for runners in Saratoga Springs, NY
Welcome to the Stryders Book Club!
We are Zooming at 6 pm on First Tuesdays! There is no need to register. Instead, we reuse the same link each month. Just click on this when the meeting is scheduled to start. The book club is open to nonmembers as well. When we are all fully vaccinated, we can consider moving back to the Palette Cafe, if that aligns with the cafe's policies and our club policies. This might be possible by June; for April and May, we will continue on Zoom.

Come prepared to discuss your reactions, any takeaways that you find especially valuable, anything that surprised you, or anything else that comes to mind. You may read it on paper, Kindle, or listen to it; no need to purchase or to bring it with you unless you find it helpful. Feel free to bring a friend! Nonmembers are welcome (but they will be encouraged to join the Stryders).
