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.
