This is your literary and topical book discussion group in Central & North Phoenix! We choose to discuss books that have been reviewed on National Public Radio programming. We are in our fifth year of existence. Book selection is a collaborative process among the regularly attending members of the Meetup. If you enjoy and appreciate thoughtful discussion of literature, please join us. See below for our next month 's meeting and book choices. Occasionally we may have a social meeting such as a brunch or gathering to watch a movie related to a book we've read.
