Tansley Reads

Are you a member of Tansley?  Do you enjoy reading and discussing books? Socializing with other readers? Tansley Reads! might suit your interests. We meet at 7:30 on the fourth Monday of every month (Sept – May, except December) to discuss a different book. And there are refreshments!
New this year we are meeting during the day at 2:00 pm on the Thursday following the Monday meeting for those who prefer to meet during the day.  Same format just a new time.  All are invited to attend either session.

Each month we’ll rate the book we discuss, and by next June we’ll have a winner to recommend to the congregation. Most of the books we choose are fiction, but we usually include one memoir or biography each year.

A list of past winners are listed below.
If you’d like more details, please contact Sheila Young (shesskyoung@gmail.com), Jennifer Brezina (aj.brezina@sympatico.ca), Sue Stephen (sue.stephen0305@gmail.com) or Janice Hatt (janicehatt@gmail.com).
