Book Clubs

Afternoon Tea

Join us for another excellent and well-vetted book selection year. We have Fiction, Non Fiction, Memoir, and History. And lively discussions! The Afternoon Tea Book Club meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 2:00 pm. We discuss and share thoughts on books suggested by our members.


Bibliophiles meet on the second Thursday of each month, from 1:00-3:00 pm.

Since Covid began, we have met once a month via Zoom and we still meet by Zoom. So, we don't ask for proof of vaccination and we don't meet in person.


We are a very friendly group of readers who discuss fiction and non-fiction books, which are selected at our June meeting for the upcoming year. We meet at 2:00 pm on the second Thursday of each month from September through June. We especially love to welcome newcomers!!!!


     1. Location - Weather Permitting we meet outdoors. Indoor meetings are being held in members’ homes.

     2. Masking policy - We do not require masks, but we tell our members to feel free to wear a mask.

     3. Social distancing - Outdoors we generally seat ourselves consistent with social distancing. However, inside members’ homes, it is not practical.

     4. Proof of vaccination status policy, (Honor system, yes or no) - We have not addressed vaccination status. If we were to require, we'd likely rely on the honor system.

     5. Carpooling policy - Not applicable to the group though individual members may choose to travel to meetings together.

Great Decisions

Great Decisions discusses the topics in the Foreign Policy Association's Great Decisions briefing book. Each chapter has in-depth historical background, information on the relevant area(s) of the world, and the development and current view of U.S. foreign policy as provided by journalists, educators and scholars on the topic. Participants are encouraged to bring related articles, background material, books or personal experiences on the topic to the meeting.

We meet the second Friday of each month at 1:00 pm to discuss a chapter of the book. To order the Great Decision 2021 Edition or materials, go to https://www.fpa.org/great_decisions/?act=gd_materials.

Their stories are embellished by the creativity of talented fiction writers. We meet on the third Wednesday of each month at 2:00 pm. New members are always welcome!
