Much Ado About Classics Book Group (JC)

    Books you've always heard of but never read. Or books you read in high school but didn't enjoy. Try them for the first time or try again every third Thursday at 6 p.m.

    Moderator Katelyn Phillips is a barista and bookseller here at WORD JC. She is a graduate of Rowan University with a BA in English focused in literature. It was here that she found her love of classics and realized that they were not, in fact, terrifying. She blogs about books (both classic and new) at bookarista.com.
