Book Groups

We currently have five book groups reading fiction and/or non-fiction, so look for one that suits your schedule and location. Each group is comprised of 12-15 members to keep the conversations focused.

Several months in advance, groups select books to be read. Some groups have formal discussion leaders; other groups are much less informal. All groups have fun engaging in lively discussions.

If you are interested in starting a group or other genres such as detective stories, mysteries, science fiction, or fantasy, start a group! With over 100 active Newcomers, there are bound to be members who want to share their love of books too. Contact our Vice President/Activity Director for guidance in starting another book group.
