Happy Hour and Book Exchange Hosted by the Near North Circle

Friday, March 4, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm


Members & guests–free (refreshments self-hosted). To RSVP, please scroll down. All attendees must show proof of vaccination, wear a mask, and must bring two books for the exchange

Join the Village Near North Circle for a Book Exchange / Meet & Greet at the very spacious Aster Hall 6th floor lounge (pictured at right). Each person is requested to bring 2 books. Attendees will exchange one book — then put their second book into a “mystery box” for everyone to pick a blind selection! Drinks and refreshments will be self-hosted from the bar. Head home with two new books, and perhaps some new friends!

This program is presented by the Village Near North Circle, but is open to any members of the Village–neighbors, friends, and friends not yet introduced.
