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 meet online on the first Friday of the month via Zoom. 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.

To receive Zoom meeting information, register for the group's email list. The volunteer who leads the group will email a link to the Zoom meeting one day before the meeting. 

About this month's title: "The Diamond Eye" by Kate Quinn

"An unforgettable World War II tale of a quiet bookworm who becomes history's deadliest female sniper. In 1937 in the snowbound city of Kiev (now known as Kyiv), wry and bookish history student Mila Pavlichenko organizes her life around her library job and her young son--but Hitler's invasion of Ukraine and Russia sends her on a different path. Given a rifle and sent to join the fight, Mila must forge herself from studious girl to deadly sniper--a lethal hunter of Nazis known as Lady Death. Based on a true story, The Diamond Eye is a haunting novel of heroism born of desperation, of a mother who became a soldier, of a woman who found her place in the world and changed the course of history forever"
