Auntie's Morning Book Group
This group reads a wide selection of mainstream fiction and some nonfiction. Meets the second Tuesday of the month at 11 a.m. for those who would rather meet during the day. Shown below are members (about 15 regulars) enjoying the leadership of Janet (in white) at one of the meetings. Since Janet's retirement, Holly is now leading the group. Although she is not shown in the photos recently added (they were taken on July 10, 2018) about half of the group's members are shown enjoying an indepth conversation about the month's book. You, too, can enjoy this group just by reading the month's selection (if you have time) and showing up to join in the fun!
