If you enjoy reading diverse genres and participating in stimulating book discussions, the OLLI Book Group is for you.
The group meets at 230 P.M. on the second Tuesday and third Thursday of each month at Quail Ridge Books in the North Hills Shopping Center. The same book is discussed at both sessions, and you are welcome at either—or both.
Once a year members are asked to recommend books. A list of these with a short abstract about each one is submitted to each member along with a ballot sheet. Members are asked to select twelve books from the list, and the winning books make up the reading list for the year.
