Literature Groups

The Vienna Area Branch offers four different literature discussion groups. They provide members with choices of days and times to fit their schedules as well as a wide variety of books.

Most literature groups meet monthly from September through June in the homes of members. The groups allow participants to expand the scope of their reading by discovering and discussing books they might otherwise not have read. Members volunteer to lead the discussions.

To learn more about any group below, please contact us and include the name of the group in the Subject field.
