AAUW Thursday Evening Book Group
AAUW Thursday Evening Book Group is one of many Interest Groups available to members of Grand Traverse Area Branch of American Association of University Women. This specific book group is currently at capacity (23 members) but we keep a waiting list for prospective new members. AAUW has several other book groups within the organization that meet each month but at different days & times.
When & Where We Meet
We meet one time per month on a Thursday evening, in members' homes, September through May to discuss selected books. In June we select books and hostesses for the next year. Every member is allowed to nominate only one book. It must be available in paperback, and the person nominating the book is required to have read it.
After we choose the 9 books, we set the calendar. We ask the person who nominated the book to act as discussion leader, and then remaining members volunteer to be either a Hostess or Co-Hostess for 1 month. Occasionally we choose anything by a particular author, instead of only 1 book, and occasionally 2 people together act as Leader.
Accommodation for Writers Series
If a majority of members want to attend a Writers Series event that conflicts with a date we have chosen, we occasionally make an adjustment to the Calendar to accommodate that.

Please note that while we do our best to make sure these pages are kept updated with current information, the AAUW Thursday Evening Book Group is not coordinated by Brilliant Books, and we can't promise they haven't changed something without telling us.
