    • Book Club: This group typically meets on Fridays at 12:15pm to have an engaging book discussion. The books to read are carefully chosen by the group leaders to allow for an accessible level of English, intercultural
      understanding and a wholesome discussion. The leaders create questions for a guided discussion. Often the discussions have allowed for a multiplicity of viewpoints where we all learn about each other’s
      cultures. This group currently meets every Friday at 8:30 am via Zoom.
