Our lively and well-attended Book Group meets monthly with one meeting being held on the fourth Wednesday of the month at 2:15 p.m. at the Herndon Senior Center and another on the fourth Thursday evening at 7:00 p.m. Evening meetings are in various locations including member homes. There is usually one combined meeting a year that is held at a local area restaurant.
The same book is discussed at both the Wednesday and Thursday groups. Members have input on what will be read from a large selection list suggested by group members and the group coordinators. The final list each year includes a selection from the AAUW Adelante Books of the Month list.
