We currently have eight book groups reading fiction and/or non-fiction, so look for one that suits your schedule and location. Each group is comprised of 8-15 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 for guidance in starting another book group.
