UUFSB's monthly Book Discussion Group is open to Fellowship members and nonmembers alike. We meet on the first Friday of the month at members' homes on a rotating basis, in general alternating fiction and nonfiction book selections. If you are not a regular member but are interested in a particular discussion, please do feel free to attend. We just ask you to please notify us in advance so the hosts know how many attendees to expect (see upcoming discussions below). Hosts provide dessert, coffee and tea.
The books we read are available in both print and audio formats.
