Book Groups

AWA currently has several book groups that each meet once a month on different days and times. Our traditional style groups allow you the opportunity to meet other women and to participate in regular discussion of books. Book Group members decide on the books to read in advance so that everyone has ample time to obtain and read them.


Attendance: As our book groups are often oversubscribed, we ask that you only register for a group if you can attend regularly. If you have registered but you miss three meetings in a row, we will sadly have to cancel your registration to allow another member to participate.
