Book Discussion Group

Meets the 3rd Monday of the month at 1:30pm at members homes from September through June.  We all read the same book, selected by the hostess who is also the discussion leader for the book.  Many of our selections are written from the perspectives of diverse cultures or have a historical background.  The group is open to members and Friends of AAUW.  Friends of AAUW are those who support our Local Authors luncheon by attending and selling tickets for this fundraising event.

Note: We do NOT meet in July or August.
