There is no book to read for the December meeting. On our last meeting of the year, we gather to reflect on what we've read, for this group and on our own. Bring a list if you can, and tell us about your favorites, what you might recommend to the group, and what you would steer others away from. We will pick a book for February 2023, so bring suggestions.
