"Virtual Book Club"
As the title suggest, this is a Virtual Book Group. The idea behind this group is twofold; COVID restrictions making us house bound and in “normal” times being connected to a book club when travelling and being in different time zones. If you would like to be part of this group and on the email list, please contact me. I will use ZIWA Facebook to promote the next book on the reading list, and you can join in as much or as little as you want. We currently meet via Zoom.
Meeting: 1 x monthly
