Book Group

Our lively and well-attended Book Groups meet 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, most usually at Scribble It Books in Reston Town Center or the Lake Anne Used Bookstore at Lake Anne, Reston.

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.
