Every participant will receive a copy of the book before the first session. Each reading group will meet on successive Tuesdays or Wednesdays from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm. Due to the nature of the reading groups, refunds cannot be offered. Seats are limited to 20 participants, so sign up early to reserve your spot!
