Bring Your Own Book or B.Y.O.B. is a "Books In Bars" book club that meets at assorted restaurants in Iowa City with host librarians, Candice and Jason. Participants share their thoughts on the book in a casual group conversation and discuss what is on their to-read pile at home.

Books for the upcoming event will be available from the Info Desk on the second floor of the library. Registration is required so everyone is guaranteed a chair in the reserved space.
