We meet to discuss an eclectic mix of fiction and nonfiction.

This book club is hosted in partnership with the Arlington's Office of Senior Adult Programs.

We are led by an experienced volunteer. We welcome new members to join us in reading and discussing current literary fiction, historical fiction and some nonfiction titles.

We meet via a hybrid format, both online and in person on the first Friday of the month. If you wish to participate in person, join us in the Bluemont Room at Central Library.

Registration required to receive the Zoom link.
