WRC Book Club


The WRC Book Club is a group of women who meet for stimulating discussions around books of the group’s choosing.  Our meeting time is on the first Monday of the month (dark in January and July); except September, when we meet the second Monday of the month. We meet from 7 to 8:30.

We welcome any woman who enjoys reading and interesting conversations!  We usually meet at WRC; but currently we meet via ZOOM, until COVID restrictions / complications end.

Please email Monica Olinger at olinger4664@gmail.com for any questions about joining our group; or questions  re: our ZOOM email list or ZOOM meeting protocol.
