Book Club

Contemporary Book Club

Westside’s Contemporary Book Club is open to all book loving UU’s in the area.  The group selects upcoming books based upon attendee suggestions.  The person who suggests the chosen book is asked to lead the discussion of his/her book and provide a short write-up of the book for the Foreword. 

Our books cover a wide range of literature genres, both fiction and nonfiction.  We try to find books that are easily acquired and not too expensive.  The mission of the book club is to acquaint members with a wide variety of books and authors that they might not ordinarily read and to get better acquainted with book club members.  If you like to read books, we welcome your participation.  We meet the fourth Sunday of the month after second service, except for November and December, when we usually meet only in early December to avoid holiday conflicts.  Our regular meeting place is the Emerson Room, unless it is otherwise engaged.  For more information, contact Linda Hanratty at for more information.  Visitors are always welcome and no rsvp is required.

Our June 28 selection is The Gown by Jennifer Robson.

On July 26 we will be discussing Sue Kidd Monk's new book, The Book of Longing.

The August 23 selection is The Marriage of Opposites by Alice Hoffman. 

We are always looking for more people to join our lively discussions on fiction and nonfiction books of interest to the group. 

Please read these charming books and join us for a lively discussion after the online service on the 4th Sunday of the month via Zoom.
