Interest Groups

Afternoon with Books

This group meets monthly on the third Friday, 1:30pm at a member's home. There is no designated leader. The group chooses books for the year so we have time to find the item. All members read the same title and prepare for a discussion of the author and book. Our choices are generally non-fiction or recent novels.

Friday Afternoon Book List

International Book Group

Save the third Monday at 7pm for a fascinating discussion of a book written by an international author or has a foreign location. They can relate to historical events or be about today's news. A member hosts the meeting at her home. There is no designated leader and the members come prepared to discuss the book. Some of the members have traveled internationally and this adds to the discussion.

International Cuisine

Reading groups can survive without designated leaders but not dining out groups. This is currently the oldest ongoing group in the San Francisco Branch. Sheila Bost and Nancy Shapiro research various suitable restaurants and usually negotiate a Price Fixe menu. The information and cost are published in the AVANTI and sent to members via email and U.S.Postal. Interested members RSVP and send the designated leader the amount. The meal occurs every couple months. Contact coordinators if you have suggestions, requests, or just want more information.

Mystery/Adventure Book Club

This book group has met for many years and presents selected book/authors in a more formal presentation. The group meets once a month at various member's homes.
