Children's literature
General cultural events (museum exhibits, concerts, etc.)

Through my employment or my membership in other groups, I can suggest a free or low cost meeting room or a pleasant, reasonably priced restaurant where WNBA could hold an event open to the general, book-loving public. Call me about it.
