Book Gathering: Books I Read During the Pandemic

Tuesday, June 1st   2:30-4:00 pm

Registration below: $5 toward RECCS Scholarship Fund

Facilitated by Gail Kittrell, Avid Reader; RECCS U Planning Team

 

Many people read more over the past 15 months since our lives changed dramatically. More books; new genres, different authors. Did your reading habits change as much as your life did? June's 90-minute session is an opportunity to discuss those books -- sharing topics, authors & titles. The conversation might change your habits for 2021 and beyond.

Gatherings are NOT book clubs. However, members of your book club are welcome. Please invite them.
Participants do NOT discuss a particular book. Each session usually focus one genre, but in June the focus is "reading during the pandemic" when we'll gather, via Zoom. The June 1st gathering is our 5th in a “series” of Book Gatherings. Each session results in a printed author/title booklist emailed to participants & posted on RECCS website.

One Note on Participants: To date 16 people have attended at least one Book Gathering. One person (other than our facilitator Gail) has attended all four. Each session has varied from 5 to 7 participants, and each session is limited to 8.
