Scratching my head trying to decide why our group is unique, I realized that our uniqueness comes from the personalities of our members who range from approximately 55-75years. This assortment of 15 women have collectively traveled every continent, but Antarctica, and have each worked or still work in fields that benefit society. These experiences make each a valuable contributor to discussion and a good person to have as a friend. In existence for fourteen years, the group is comprised of passionate readers who were born in California, South Africa, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts. Most members volunteer in different organizations with social action goals; one third of us volunteer for a Literacy program that helps at risk youth from pre-school to college age.
One woman drives 73.2 miles each way to our monthly meeting and the 140 plus selections we have read are representative of a variety of genres from fiction to nonfiction, serious to humorous.
We have no name or mission statement because we believe we don’t need either because our mission, to share and discuss literature with one another and to learn from one another is obvious. Although we have considered clever, insightful names, we prefer to be called “Book Group” because that is what we are and it does not limit the choice of books to discuss. The group is an important part of each of our lives.
