All women are welcome to join us for good reads and great discussion! This group is open to women of all ages. We currently have participants who range in age from their 20’s to their 80’s! We read a wide variety of styles and stories, both fiction and non-fiction. Book titles are chosen by the participants. During the summer, the group hosts a special “Book and a Movie Series.” Participants read a book and then gather at a member’s home or local theater to snack, discuss, and watch the movie version of the month’s selection. In addition to sharing a love of reading, participants support one another, laugh together, and serve in yearly mission projects.
For a sample of the books the group has read, check out this list.
Meeting Date/Time: Third Thursday of each month, 7 pm (monthly)
Meeting Location: PUMC, or off-site (member’s home or movie theater)

Members of Women’s Book Group say…
“I love to go [to book group] and see everyone and talk about the good books I’ve read!”
“We always have such a great time. I love to meet new people each month and hear about these great books! I don’t feel guilty if I can’t make it each time, or if I haven’t quite finished the book. I know people will always welcome me.”
“I don’t think I would ever read a book if it wasn’t for this group! They keep me reading the latest and greatest books – and I have something to look forward to each month.”
