September 2018 Spotlight: The Marguerites

Our September Spotlight Group raises money while they read!

The Marguerites are the September 2018 Spotlight group on Reading Group Choices
The Marguerites all belong to a nonprofit called P.E.O. (philanthropic educational organization) which raises money for women’s education and is a life-long learning group. When the P.E.O. chapter they were in became too large to host meetings in homes, the chapter split in two but still wanted to stay connected, and so a reading group of women from both chapters was born in 2004.

The Marguerites cap their membership at 12 so that each member has a turn annually to choose a book and host a meeting. They bring their own lunches and eat after the discussion.  They read all types of literature, including poetry!

To enter to become a Spotlight group, email a picture and description of your group to If your group is chosen, we will send you and your group a box of discussable books and a copy of our most recent edition of Reading Group Choices!
