* First Friday of each month *

A monthly meeting of people who enjoy reading good literature and discussing it in fellowship with others of similar interests. At the beginning of the year members offer suggestions and vote on them for a reading list schedule compiled for 12 months in advance to provide opportunity for everyone to obtain and read the book. Volunteers facilitate the discussion or bring light refreshment for each meeting.
