Book Club I

The UMRA Book Club has been meeting regularly since March of 2011.  We meet at 2 p.m. on the third Friday of every month at the 1666 Coffman Building, which is on Larpenteur Avenue near the St. Paul Campus.  At the present time, though, we are meeting online via Zoom.

We plan our book schedule for the coming year at our December meeting.

We are eclectic readers, our books being from all time periods, fiction and nonfiction, and from various genres. Contact Pat Tollefson for more information (p-toll@umn.edu).  A list of all the books we have read is available from Pat as well.

The UMRA Book Club I is full at the present with a short waiting list.  Contact us to get on the wait list.  Or see Book Club II
