    I would love to participate in this group! I am an avid reader and truly enjoy memoirs by women writers. I work from 7:30 to 3:00 every day, however. Maybe I will try to leave early for one or two of the meetings coming up this spring. I am retiring in July. Will the Book Group still be meeting after July?

      Hi Cathy, definitely stop by if you can. As for after July, I don’t currently have confirmation. I believe we might skip the fall as we may have some other new book groups starting up at that time.
