Book discussions are a great way to connect with old friends, or to make new ones! Join one of our discussions virtually from the comfort of your home, or pick up a Book Club in a Bag to read with friends!
We read and discuss a wide variety of titles for our discussions. Find a group to join each month, or read whatever takes your fancy and jump in to talk about it. Here are just a few of the discussions happening in February:
