The AAUW Reston-Herndon Branch Book Groups are open to all members.
These lively and well-attended groups meet in afternoon and evening sessions each month. The afternoon meeting is held at 2:15 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of the month at the Herndon Senior Center. The evening group meets at 7:00 pm. on the fourth Thursday of the month at Scrawl Books on Freedom Drive in Reston Town Center. The same book is discussed at both the Wednesday afternoon and Thursday evening groups.
Members have input into what will be read for the year from a large selection list suggested by group members and the group coordinators. The final list each year always includes one selection from the AAUW Adelante Books of the Month list.
Our last Book Group Meetings for the year will be held on Wednesday, December 5 and Thursday, December 6.The book selection is A Column of Fire by Ken Follett.
