Making Democracy Work

Book Groups

LWVS Community Book Groups

Twice a year-- fall and spring-- the League chooses a book that is interesting, timely and thought-provoking as the subject of a community book discussion. Open to all and typically held at a member's home, these discussions are casual and collegial, honest and lively. You'll certainly leave with new knowledge and insight, and maybe a few new friends! Join us!
