Women’s Book Group

bookClub_heart2017

The LPC Women’s Book Group reads a diverse set of books, including fiction, biographies, memoirs, books on faith, philosophy and technology.   Reading and discussing our selections, we are able to explore many aspects of our lives as women of faith.  Every experience is enriching, building bonds of friendship.

Early each year, we gather at a local restaurant to share a meal and select books for the rest of that year.  Everyone is encouraged to bring one or two book suggestions and be ready to share a brief description of the book.  From February through November we meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 7:30 PM for book discussions in the home of one of the members.  We take December off to make time for Christmas.

To attend, just read the book and let the hostess know to expect you.  Join us for thoughtful discussions and to make new friends! 

First Meeting of 2017: February
Agenda: Book Selections

Meetings: Monthly, Third Tuesday at 7:30 pm
Newcomers are always welcome.

Call 732-741-8921 for further information.
