Once a month a small group of League members meets to discuss a book of interest to League members, relating to national and international history, women, League issues and political science, or our country’s history. Book club members take turns proposing a book to read and leading the discussion. Recent book titles have included:
“The Notorious R.B.G: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg” by Irin Carmon & Shana Knizhnik
“Grant”by Ron Chernow
“The Weight of Ink”by Rachel Kaddish
“The Accidental President.” by A.J. Baime, about how Harry Truman became President
The Book Club is a great way to get to know other League members! Book Club members report that they have read many books that they would not normally read, finding them to be quite interesting and worthwhile reading.
Third Tuesday of the month at 1:30 PM
To encourage meaningful discussion and participation, we plan to keep Each Discussion group small. However, if there is interest, we will form additional book groups if needed, potentially on weekends or evenings for those who work.
What members are
saying about the LWV Book Club:
For many months, I had been looking for a book club that focuses on history, politics, biography, and current events. When I read about the LWV Book Club in the newsletter, I asked to join. I am loving it! The books are fascinating, the monthly leaders are always very well prepared, the members faithfully read the books, and the discussions are stimulating and interesting. Importantly, each discussion ends on a positive note with ideas and suggestions about how we can best use what we have learned.
