Stimulating discussions and fellowship are at the heart of the Book Club meetings. Each month (usually on the first Sunday after the Worship service) or via Zoom, the group meets to discuss works of both fiction and non-fiction. The Club is open to all. One of the benefits of participating in a book club is that you will read books that you would not normally select. Reading outside your comfortable genre can be an eye-opening experience and broaden your horizons. If you have read or would like to read any of the book selections listed below for 2023, we would welcome you to join in the discussions.
