Wednesday Book Group

Wednesday, December 5, 2018

Wednesday Book Group is WFPL's monthly book discussion group for adults. Discussions are informal and generally based on personal reactions, not academic analysis. Click 'More Details' to see the list of upcoming titles.

The Wednesday Book Group invites any interested readers to its monthly meetings. This is a public group with members who attend regularly but also people who drop in once in a while. The books are available at the Circulation desk 4 weeks before the meeting date.
