Women’s Book Group

Women’s Book Group

Greetings Readers,

Our group welcomes all women who enjoy reading and discussing books.  There is no commitment involved.

We meet the last Monday of each month.

Even if you haven’t read the book, it is fine to come and listen to the discussion and meet our friendly members.

Here are the following selections for Women’s Book Group:

September 27 – Radium Girls by Kate Moore
October 25 – Nickel and Dimed: on Not Getting by in America by Barbara Ehrenreich

November 29 – Being Mortal by Atul Gawande
December 27 – Keep Moving by Dick VanDyke

These meetings at 7:00pm in the church parlor.  Contact Rita Gronemeyer 630-399-0702 for further information.

And just for fun…..

Hi Everyone,
Here’s the updated list of books we’ve read over the past 30 years. We’ve read some pretty good stuff!   Enjoy looking back.
