Book Groups

Some of the book groups are on hiatus during the pandemic restrictions, and a few are meeting virtually.  If you are interested in any, please contact the bookstore.  We can forward your info to the facilitator.

Book Groups meet at Watchung Booksellers and are open to all.  No need to register.
