What We’re Reading: Monthly Book Group

Our monthly book group meets the first Tuesday of each month.   Starting at 11:45 AM many of us gather for an informal lunch at a local north coast restaurant.   If lunch isn’t in your schedule, our official meeting begins at 1:00 PM at Seaside City Hall, 989 Broadway Street, Seaside.  Please read the book in advance of the meeting.   Newcomers are always welcome.

Questions?  Margaret Steele, margaret.v.steele@gmail.com

Our members choose books each December and reflect an eclectic mix.   We try to pick books that are in paperback and usually include a children’s lit book, an autobiography or biography, a classic, some non-fiction, and something lighthearted.  Books for the remainder of the year are.
