Leaders: Cathy Cunningham and Susan Lorant
The Third Monday Afternoon Book Group meets at the Prescott Public Library from 1:30 to 3:00 each month. We are an informed group of women who enjoy stimulating conversation based on the books we read. We don’t have facilitators or structured discussions but take up themes and issues raised by each month’s book and expand upon them, relating them to our own experiences and understandings.
Visitors are always welcome to join us. Because several of our meeting dates fall on holidays when the library is closed, please contact Patti Allen-LaFleur or Susan Lorant to confirm the location.
A year’s worth of selected book and dates are below. Be sure to check the date in the first column.
