Facilitated by Adult Services Librarian Joan Ennis, the Contemporary Women Writers Book Group meets the third Tuesday of the month from 7:00 pm in the library. The group selects books once a year in September. The group primarily reads fiction by women authors, but also occasionally reads nonfiction and works by male authors.Meetings begin with background information on the writer, followed by discussion. No advance signup is required. New members are always welcome!
