Our first meeting the 2017-18 season will be Monday September 24th, when we’ll nominate books for the program and select 8 for the year. If you like, please bring one title to nominate and a backup in case of duplications. Even if you don’t have a nomination, come and help select the books for this year.
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 (email@example.com), Jennifer Brezina (firstname.lastname@example.org), Sue Stephen (email@example.com) or Janice Hatt (firstname.lastname@example.org).
