At the beginning of each church year, participants offer up their favorite reads, and books are chosen for the coming year along with the schedule, discussion leaders, and hostesses.  *Meetings are usually held at the church on the second Friday of the month September through May, preceded by lunch together at a nearby restaurant. 

While the Women’s Book Group is on hiatus, consider picking up one of the titles on this Climate Change Reading List compiled by the Kalamazoo Climate Crisis Coalition for your summer reading.
