Book Club II: The Friendly Fourth Friday Book Club

The UMRA Book Club II is new and we welcome new readers.  We meet at 2 p.m. on the fourth Friday of every month except December.  At the present time, we are meeting online via Zoom.

We expect this club will be eclectic readers, fiction and nonfiction, although we are just learning what we will be. Contact Dorothy Mardan <marden@umn.edu> or Margarat Catambay <m-cata@umn.edu> for more information.
