Women’s Book Group
The Women’s Book Group is open to UUCC members and friends who identify as women or feel most connected in women-specific spaces. 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 and discussion leaders. Meetings are held via Zoom on the second Friday of the month September through May.
