2018-2019 Book List for LWVCC Book Group

 
This year the LWVCC Book Group will discuss ten books which cover a number of the timely topics that concern all of us. The books in the first and third sessions will complement league programs and the last session will be an author's talk. Additional information on the books along with the dates for the meetings will be advertised in MMN, the League Bulletin and on the Book Group page on the LWVCC website. Here are the books and the months that we will be discussing them. Book Group meetings are open to the public and league members and their friends are encouraged to come and participate in our lively and thought-provoking discussions.
