Book Club

The LWVCNM Book Club is an informal gathering of LWVCNM members who are interested in reading and discussing books. They meet once every two months, discussing a new book each time. The books are chosen by the group at previous meetings.

Join Book Club coordinators Janet Kirkpatrick, Mary Mulvany, and Laura Downing for lively discussion and conversation. Bring along a “potluck” snack – something sweet or savory – to share with the group (not required, just if you have the time).

The May 22 Book Club meeting will be at 5:30 at 1331 Park Ave. SW. The book is Why We’re Polarized by author Ezra Klein.

Not able to finish a book in time for a session? No Worries! Feel free to attend and follow along with the discussion.
