We are going to try a new way of choosing books for both book groups. See the form below. Forms will also be available at the picnic on June 19 and at the final meeting of the Evening Group on June 27.
Connie and I will use the forms to choose books for several months at a time, Sept.-Oct., Nov.-Jan., and Feb.-May. This way we won’t be locked into a list if new suggestions come up! The forms can be sent to me any time and I’ll keep them on file for future reference. Chosen titles will be available on the website monthly.
We hope this will produce a list of books readily available to all and will give us more flexibility to include books suggested by more members. We also encourage you to volunteer to lead a discussion.
