Wellspring Reads Book Discussion Group

Wellspring Reads meets once a month. The group has come up with a list of books for us to read and discuss, a mixture of fiction and nonfiction.

In lieu of face-to-face meetings, we will use Zoom video meetings. In preparation for the discussion, the host emails a few discussion questions and perhaps a link to a relevant video clip, such as an interview with the author of the book to be discussed.
