Readers participating in Book Group nominate and select the books they wish to read for the upcoming year. All branch members may attend as few or as many sessions as they desire. The Book Group meets at the home of the hostess. Check the newsletter or Membership Yearbook for hostess name. Reading guides available at Reading Group Guides or Lit Lovers.
Don’t worry, you don’t have to sign up to read all the books! Drop in when a book interests you.
In addition, we support ¡Adelante! Book of the Month Club, AAUW’s book club to spotlight engrossing stories and writing by women from all backgrounds. Each month, members from across the nation participate in the discussion.
