About our Book Groups

*These groups will probably start small and grow.
Our conference room will comfortably hold ten people.
Many book groups find that a book group of about 8-10 people
is just about the right size.

There is no charge to participate, and there is no need to register.

We can also supply information on facilitating book group discussions,
deciding what kinds of books lead to rewarding discussions, etc.
If you have any questions, give us a call.

P.S. These groups may also be of interest
to someone you know!

Happy Reading!
