    The Easton Public Library Palmer Branch is having a group regarding Adult Books??? That has to be a misnomer ...

    1. It's a book group for adults, not a group that meets to discuss "adult books". At least, I'm assuming "Shades of Gray" and other such titles aren't going to be on the list any time soon!
