The Elizabeth Book Club held its first meeting in October 2016 and met once every month until the first wave of the pandemic. Even then, the group missed only two months, March and April 2020, before moving to Zoom meetings.
Eventually we hope to again meet face-to-face in the Elizabeth’s Community Room. Members—both men and women—volunteer to select a title and lead the discussion at the monthly meeting. The titles chosen include both fiction and non-fiction. Discussions at times venture beyond the text at hand to wider issues.
Take a look at the list of books the group has read. If you’re interested, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for email reminders of future meetings. They are held on the second Monday of each month, from 4:30 to 6:00 in the afternoon.
