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 is at WRC on the first Monday of the month (dark in July and January); except for September, which moves to the second Monday.  We meet from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm.

We welcome any woman who enjoys reading and interesting conversations!   Please email Monica Olinger at olinger4664@gmail.com for any questions about joining our group.
