BOOK CLUB

The Book Club was started in 2008 and is still going strong!  The friendly group meets every 5-6 weeks in our lower lounge to discuss the book chosen by one of us.

We have read fiction, non-fiction, memoirs, short stories and is there anything else?  Discussions are always enjoyable accompanied by snacks and drinks for those interested.  It is open to all, even if you'd only like to join for select books.  We also have semi-regular poetry readings and movie screenings which coincide with our book selections.

Book Club meetings always provide a fine evening of wine, snacks and some lively - but friendly - conversation.  All Racquet Club members are invited to join us at any time!  

Contact Claire Miko at parkhillracquetclub@gmail.com, if you would like to be included.
