The July Spotlight Group Is…

July 2024 Spotlight: Savannah’s Friends

Our July 2024 Spotlight has been meeting monthly for 24 years!

Our book group, “ Savannah’s Friends”, was named for one of the original members of our group who passed away from cancer. Even to her final days, she was an avid reader and attended meetings. After her death, her grown daughter came to our meeting to tell us how important our group had been to her mother. The group has met monthly for 24 years, in person for 22 and on Zoom for 2.

The March Spotlight Group Is…

March 2024 Spotlight: City of Brea Book Club

Our March 2024 Spotlight is celebrating eight years together!

I started the book club here at the City of Brea when I began working here in 2016 with a handful of fellow readers as a way to make friends and of course read.  We have grown from a group of 3-4 to a fun, loud, boisterous group of 16.  We typically meet in the employee break room during lunch once a month.  We have tried a few different ways of choosing our next book and have found that genres work best for us.
