WE ENGAGE COMMUNITIES ON A LEARNING JOURNEY IN HISTORY AND SCIENCE

Join us for a monthly book club at Sloan Museum of Discovery!

Every first Thursday of the Month, Sloan Museum of Discovery will host a book club in one of our learning labs! Each month we will gather to discuss a different book affiliated with Flint's storied history, and learn how each story connects with our community and our newly renovated museum. Don't forget to grab a coffee from our on site Coffee Beanery Café before joining the discussion. This is a free gathering, included with Museum Admission.
