Centennial Book ClubOur book club focuses on books relating to issues of interest to League members, and the advocacy positions we pursue. We focus on non-fiction, but sometimes might read fiction. The club is open to LWV of Oakland members, and for the time being, will be held online.

We meet every other month,  convening at 6 p.m. on the third Thursday of the month. You should be sure to sign up using the Eventbrite links that will appear in the LWVO Email blasts.
