Circle of Friends Book Club meeting summary for July 2019

July 11, 2019

July’s meeting was a consultation on how the bookclub will proceed for the next several months. The discussion was animated and lively. Although the group did not initially decide on a theme, after picking several books we noticed that many of the suggestions are about migration or displaced people in various parts of the world. There were so many book title suggestions that we have decided to offer two (2) books per month. For each month members can read either book, and then discuss the book with the club. We decided to continue to have Personal Choice selections for some months.
