Book Discussion Group
The Book Discussion Group meets the first Monday of the month at 7:30 for a lively talk about our reading. Books are chosen by member consensus – both fiction and nonfiction, usually current but we read some classics, too. Everyone is welcome to join throughout the year; we hope to see you virtually during one of our Zoom discussions.
For more information, contact Kaye Bonney or Leslie Vallerga.
We are reading Overstory by Richard Powers for December 7.
From the roots to the crown and back to the seeds, Richard Powers’s novel unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fables that range from antebellum New York to the late twentieth-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest.
