Seabrook Island Special Interest Groups – Book Groups

One of the things that makes Seabrook Island so special is the breadth of interests and talents shared by its residents. Fortunately, we have a wide variety of avenues to nurture those interests and talents. Depending on what is important to you and how you like to spend your time, you might want to check out these available book groups.

Exploring Books

Exploring Books started in 1995. We meet once a month, usually on the second Monday of the month. This group is very eclectic and includes members of all ages. We meet ten months of the year and choose our books at our last meeting of the year. We meet at members’ homes but in the last year, we have met at the Pelican’s Nest during Covid. One person reviews the book while another hosts.
