It's a Book Club, Right?

Reading is a cornerstone of conversation, and we like to talk at The Spokesman-Review. What newspaper doesn’t like a good story? What we know here is that good stories are everywhere. The newspaper is one place to share them – but Northwest Passages Book Club created another space to share them in our community.

Northwest Passages Book Club can take you to any number of places all without leaving downtown Spokane. You are invited to come to one of our events and see what we mean!
