Reading Groups focus on reading mostly fiction and non-fiction books. The groups are divided into intermediate, high-intermediate, and advanced reading material. Some groups may include children. These groups meet twice a month.
1. Intermediate Reading Group
First and Third Thursday, 10:30 am – 12:30 pm, Meets on Zoom
This group uses intermediate fluency in communication. Members are expected to read 50-60 pages of a book (fiction or non-fiction) before each meeting.
2. Intermediate (High) Reading Group
Second and Fourth Wednesday, 9:30 am – 11:30 am, Meets on Zoom
This group uses intermediate to advanced fluency in communication. Members are expected to read 50-60 pages of a book (fiction or non-fiction) before each meeting. Unfamiliar vocabulary, grammar and idioms are often discussed.
3. Advanced Reading Group
Second and Fourth Thursday, 11:00 am – 1:30 pm, Meets in person
This year’s group is specifically designed for women interested in reading and discussing a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction books (we typically cover the gamut!). We will be covering American literature books and foreign literature translated into English. However, given the advanced subject material, participation will require advanced English/fluency skills to fully engage. Members of the group take turns leading the discussion for each meeting’s book/topic area. All books should also be readily available at local libraries for check-out.
4. Monthly Advanced Reading Group
Second Friday of the Month, 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm, Meets in person
This group meets once a month in person to discuss a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction books. We typically read one book a month although we might take two months, or longer, for more in-depth reads. Members help in selecting the books and leading the discussions, although not everyone is required to lead a discussion. In addition to discussing books, we enjoy sharing about our families, our cultures and our community!
