This group differs from the bible study groups. Books are selected based on current popularity or member favorites. Many books are selected because the local library can offer multiple copies of the same book. Most are selected at the end of the reading year (June) for the following year (starting in September).
A different member hosts the group in her home and another member provides dessert. If it is more convenient for the designated member, meetings may be held in the lounge of the church. It is not necessary to read the book, but it's a lot more fun during the conversation.
As with most programs, it is open to everyone, not only church members.
