Second Sunday Book Group

This group, which has been meeting for nearly twenty years, reads and discusses fiction, usually by women.  Facilitated by Laurel-Heather Milden, the group chooses recently published novels by authors ranging from the obscure to the well known.

If you have any questions about the group, Laurel-Heather would be glad to help.  Email her at and she asks that you mention the book group name on the subject line.

This group meets on the second Sunday of the month at 2:00pm.
