Come Share the Warmth

Book Discussion Group

 
               
 
                     Book Discussion Group  
 
Come join our group which usually meets on the last Friday of each month usually at HUMC at 11:30 a.m. Come once or come every time - new, regular, or occasional participants are always welcome.  We order lunch individually, catch up on each other's news, and then discuss the book.  Books are chosen one or a few at a time, depending on the recommendations from the group.  Check the newsletter or calendar for changes in date or location.  The Hayward Library has 10-12 copies available each month.  Just ask for the Methodist Book Club book.  Updated book information is available at:  http://www.weisscommunitylibrarybookclubs.wikifoundry.com/page/United+Methodist+Church+Book+Club
