Welcome back to a new season of UUCW Book Group beginning September 14, 7pm in Fellowship Hall.  The book for discussion is Mercy Street by Jennifer Haigh.  It’s not too late to read a synopsis if you haven’t had a chance to get it over the summer!  So join us for what promises to be a rousing discussion of the social and political aspects of women’s health.  If you like to read give us a try….we love to see new faces! Below is the fall to winter list for this season.  We will add to it in January.

Our books include fiction and non-fiction and are chosen by our members each July.  Contact Nancy Hancock at if interested in joining us and to get a copy of the current reading list.  All readers are welcome.
