We started 15 years ago and are still going strong . We cover seven books a year, and the members who are able take turns leading the discussion. We invite guest speakers, including retired college professors or high school English teachers, to add some variety. We try to cover a variety of books. We believe in stretching our minds and are open to some new ideas. Here are some of the books we have enjoyed.
The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch
Killing Lincoln by Bill O’Reilly
The Art of Forgiving by Lewis B. Smedes
The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford
The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
The Worst Hard Time by Timothy Egan
Night by Elie Wiesel
Invisible Wall by Harry Bernstein
Still Alice by Lisa Genova
This is just a small sample of what we have done. We start at 7:00 pm and usually have coffee and cookies first. We use the library as most people do not like to purchase books.
