Book Club

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 except December at the 1666 Coffman Building, which is on Larpenteur Avenue near the St. Paul Campus.

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

We are eclectic readers, our books being from all time periods, fiction and nonfiction, and from various genres. New members are welcome. 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.
