Book Discussion Group

Monthly book group meets at an area library. At every meeting, members have a “go around” to suggest a book they have read that others might enjoy. These suggestions are reviewed to come up with a list for the following year. Selections typically include biographies, historical fiction and contemporary novels. For this year’s holiday project, members are collecting new and gently used children’s books; they will be donated to youngsters who are part of the Family Promise program.
