This is your literary and topical book discussion group in Central & North Phoenix! We select books & authors from National Public Radio programming. Go to for more information about National Public Radio if you don't already know about it! We are in our third year of existence. See below for our next month 's meeting and book choices. We pick the books a few months at a time  either at meetings or by web poll. Once in a while we have a social meeting such as a brunch or gathering to watch a movie related to a book we've read.
