The books range over a wide varieties of subjects, such as history, art, music, health, travels, social matters, psychology. Biographies and memoirs are popular.

WHERE AND WHEN WE MEET

There are two subgroups, with choice of which to attend. One meets on the second Tuesday of the month, the other on the fourth Tuesday of the month.

WHERE AND WHEN WE MEET

Meetings are on the first Tuesday of every month, at 2:00 p.m. at the Marjorie Mews Library.

 

HOW WE SELECT THE BOOKS WE READ

Members vote on a list of books which they have read and recommended to the group.

BOOK SELECTION CRITERIA 

Members must have read the book they recommend (not just have relied on a review).

The book must cost less than $20, which in most cases means it is available in paperback or as an e-book.  

BOOK AVAILABILITY

Many of the books are available at local libraries.   

It is also usually possible to borrow books from other members of the group, if needed.
