North Fulton AAUW Monday Night Book Club

The North Fulton AAUW Evening Book Club meets once per month on Monday nights from 7 pm to approximately 8:30 pm.

Book Selection: Books are suggested once a year and selected by member vote. The branch decides each year if they want to participate in “Roswell Reads”, and therefore omit a book club meeting in either March or April.

The Club’s selections are not limited by category, subject, or author. However, only books that are available in paperback are considered.

The first 15 minutes of the meeting is a social time. Discussion lasts approximately an hour. Monday evening meetings end at 8:30. Host provides beverages.

 Non-members of AAUW are considered guests and are welcome to attend one book club meeting. It is hoped that they will wish to join AAUW and continue to participate in book club as branch members.

2020 – 2021 Book Schedule

Due to the Covid Virus both the Monday night and Friday morning North Fulton Book Clubs are meeting as one and virtually. All meetings are monthly on Monday nights at 7:00 p.m. via Zoom until further notice. Members will receive an email each month alerting them to the meeting.
