Do you enjoy Reading? Shoreline’s Women’s book club provides a great opportunity to discuss interesting books with other likeminded Shoreline women. You are welcome to join us at any time. We meet at homes in the greater Monterey area, monthly from 7:00 – 8:30 PM on the third Thursday of each month (other than in July and December). Come and enjoy fellowship with new friends, great discussions, and light snacks.
A different book is selected for each month’s meeting. Club members are encouraged to recommend books and the group leader selects the books she believes offers the best opportunity for a great discussion. Christian books as well as secular books that provide opportunities to reflect on spiritual matters are selected.
The book club also encourages a book exchange among members. Members are given an opportunity to describe and offer Christian non-fiction books they find particularly compelling for others in the group to borrow, keep, or pass along to others. This provides another opportunity to share good books.
Members do not need to attend every meeting. But when the monthly invitation is received, you are asked to RSVP (yes or no) so that the host can be prepared with enough chairs and refreshments.
If you would like to be included in the book club mailing list or if you have questions, please email email@example.com.
