Reading Circle

The Reading Circle usually meets the third Monday of each month from 1:30 to 3.30 p.m. We choose a different book to read each month, a mixture of modern fiction and non-fiction.

Meetings are held on Zoom at the present time. The group is often fully subscribed and a wait-list is kept of interested readers. Or consider starting another reading group yourself, with an announcement in the newsletter. Contact the interest group coordinator for details.

Group Leader: Irene Lennox,, 831-457-2690.
