Women's Book Group

This group meets every 3rd Wednesday of the month, 7:30 - 8:30 pm in the Parlor, to discuss both non-fiction and fiction books selected by group members.  Everyone is invited to all meetings -- or just when a particular title is of interest.  Contact Ronniejean Irvin at 703-273-4113, or

Click any book title in the table below to read a review and synopsis of a book (usually from online Powell's Books).  An archive section is also provided so you can see (and read reviews) of past books read and discussed.
