The SOAR Book Club, active for more than 10 years, was the organization’s first shared interest group. With the exception of December, it meets the third Friday of each month at 1:15 p.m. Group members read and discuss award-winning fiction and non-fiction.
Listed below are books that the SOAR Book Club will be discussing in 2017. Suggestions of additional titles are welcome. Please remember that suggestions must either be award-winning books or books that you have read that are appropriate for the group to discuss. Send suggestions to Roberta Russ at the email address listed below, or bring them to an up-coming meeting.
