Contemporary Issues Book Group

Monday, May 7, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Thanks to all who participated in this group and discussed titles related to contemporary issues to help us understand and respond to today's new world.

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. 503-675-2540
