Great Books Circle

The Great Books Reading Circle meets monthly to discuss novels selected by the group. Please come to any or all of our sessions to share your  reflections. Whether you love or hate the choice, it’s stimulating to discuss. We have met as a book group for almost ten years! We like to say we are not a Book Club – but a Circle. A circle is inclusive and expands to invite you in.

Note: We have a relationship with Amazon. For anything you buy by clicking through to Amazon using the above image, the UU Congregation will get a small percentage of the sale. The small amounts add up and help us offer more programs! So if you will buy a book, please click on this link!

Details: 2nd Sunday (usually, but not always) of the month at 12:15 pm in Room 7.
