Book Group

The OCUUC Book Group usually meets monthly on the first Monday of each month at 7:30 pm on Zoom for lively discussions. However, for the fall, meetings will be on the first Tuesday of each month. The regular meeting time will resume in January 2022. Each time, one of the members leads the discussion.

  • November 2nd: Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie

All are welcome to join us.  For further information, feel free to contact the coordinators Marcia Hackett and Eva Goodwin Noriega.

Come join us even if you haven't read the book. You'll enjoy the discussion.

Details of how to join is available on the church calendar (please note, when returning to the regular schedule in January 2022, the Zoom connection information will change, see the regular Book Group listing for details).
