Books For Breakfast Summer 2022

AWC-SB presents Books for Breakfast, an informal summer discussion group of books of interest to communicators. Two no-host events are taking place from 7:30-9 a.m. on July 13 and August 10 at Renaud’s Bakery, 1324 State St, Santa Barbara (across from the Arlington Theatre). Meetings are no-host (you buy your own beverage/breakfast).
