Many people enjoy reading, discussing, and socializing with people who share their interest. Participation is open to everyone.
The TUMC Book Group meets at 7 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month from September through June in member's homes, and we are on hiatus during the summer. During our annual potluck in June, book group members nominate a variety of books and select those we will read the next year. Our contact person is Ethel Takeguchi.
