Freestyle Book Club--Medicine and the Human Body

  • Tin Whiskers Brewing Co 125 9th Street East Saint Paul, MN, 55101 United States (map)

The Freestyle Book Club is led by our Bibliotherapist, Matt Keliher at SubText. This is a gathering of individuals who share their perspectives on the chosen book club theme. The Freestyle Book Club is a relaxed gathering. You can read from the list of suggestions, or choose a book on your own that fits the theme, and join us on the night of the event to share your perspective. There's nothing better than discussing the twists and turns of plot lines while working out to some 16oz curls!
