Women's Book Group

All who identify as women — Accotinkers and friends — and who like a good read and friendly discussion are welcome to at any of these meetings.

If you are a woman who likes to read a wide range of books, join this friendly group for some lively conversation and fellowship!

Meetings are the third Tuesday of the month at 1:00 PM, at a member’s home or safely via Zoom during the pandemic. The year’s titles and schedule are voted on in July.

For more information, contact Sandy B. or [email protected]
