Book Discussion Groups 

Listed below are the reading selections for our Book Groups for the 2018-19 year. You will note there is a wide variety of subjects chosen and no titles overlap between the two groups.  You have a choice of meeting days and times, so hopefully one will fit your schedule and both welcome new members.

So, if your current book group has run its course or you would just like to meet some new people and engage in lively discussions, without having to stress about cleaning the house, please consider joining one of these groups either by yourself or with a friend.  Membership is free, but you have to be a FOEGL member.  At the very least, use these lists as reading suggestions for yourself with our compliments!

If you have a special interest or idea for a book group and are looking for like-minded readers, please let us know and we will help get the word out.  Send an email to:
