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. Leave with new knowledge and insight, and maybe a few new friends! Please join us!
Fall Community Book Discussion
Monday, December 16, 2019, at 9:30am
Location: Private home within Scarsdale
This fall, we will discuss two books with contrasting perspectives on immigration. What accounts for the current influx of immigrants? What number of new immigrants can our economy support? What is our responsibility to those seeking a better life in the United States?
The new bookstore in Scarsdale Village, Bronx River Books, is offering League Book Group participants a 10% discount on both book selections.
