Book Group

Join us to read and discuss books in a small group setting. We meet on the fourth Tuesday of the month via Zoom.  We check in at 10:45 AM, then start the discussion at 11:00 AM, which lasts for about an hour. We select the books as a group several months in advance, choosing from all genres. The discussion is always stimulating, lively and respectful.
