Local author Lisa Banados has been hearing from women around Leesville and Fort Polk that they wish there was a local book club where they could get together and talk about books. Finding none, she decided to start her own.

Beginning Jan. 7, Lisa’s Book Club will be meeting every Monday from 5-7 PM at her home near Fort Polk to discuss faith-based books. Refreshments will be provided.

To kick-off the club she will be raffling off a large gift basket at the first meeting and will then raffle off one gift basket monthly.

The first book they will be reading is “War Room” by Chris Fabry. The second book will be “Hearing the Voice of God” written by Banados herself.

Anyone interested in attending is asked to call (337) 378-4537 to get the address.
