Contemporary Literature Book Club

The Contemporary Literature Book Club members have the freedom to present and discuss a novel in a manner that is
comfortable with them. Usually, the presenter shares facts about the author, background of the book, and then
encourages the members to give their opinion(s). The discussion of Pamela McLain's book, CIRCLING THE SUN,
resulted in following it up with watching the movie Out of Africa.

The Contemporary Literature Book Club meets the 1st Tuesday of the month at 1:00.
Join us in signing up for lunch prior to meeting.
