WVURA Book Club

The Book Club held its initial meeting on October 2, 2015. At that meeting, the group agreed tentatively to read one book a month and that book would be discussed at the following meeting. Also, members would bring to each meeting ideas about what kind of books to read and possible title suggestions for future readings.

The Book Club will be unique - no pressures, no dues, no book reports to give, no discussions to lead, no grades – just camaraderie and a cup of coffee! If you would like to join the club, just come to one of the meetings. We welcome new members.
