Literature

The literature group provides an opportunity to expand members’ knowledge of fiction and non fiction.
Works are chosen by the group, read at home, and discussed at the monthly meetings in a lively, easy going atmosphere. Individuals can contribute as much or as little as they wish.

At some meetings the life of the author and background of the book may be explored.
The emphasis is on prose but some poetry may also be considered.  The Literature group will meet on the third Friday of the month and members will meet at 10:30am to 12 noon.
