Book Club   

ONLINE: A Zoom invitation link will be sent one day before each class session begins.

Using prepared questions and our own observations, the discussion each month will explore a book from current best-seller lists. Please read Goodnight Irene before the first class. The facilitators will send a list of discussion questions for each book to all registrants prior to each Book Club session.
