Book Clubs

Courageously Coed Book Club: Meets the second Monday in person.

The Coed Book Club invites anyone who likes to read and discuss novels to join us. We have in common a love of reading and talking about books—appreciating good writing that offers a glimpse into the lives, worlds and ideas of others. We also appreciate the communal experience of the group and getting to know each other in a different setting at Northwoods.

Contact Susan Powers for information: susanpowers2008@gmail.com for the reading list and Zoom login information.

The Men’s Book Club: Meets meets regularly on the first Saturday of each month in person.

The Men’s Book Club reads a wide variety of both fiction and nonfiction books. We have about 15 members who are mostly retired professionals. We select the books once a year by voting on nominations from the members. Each month a different person leads the discussion of that month’s book.

The Women’s Book Club: Meets on the third Saturday of the month at 10:00 a.m. on Zoom

The Women’s Book Club has been meeting monthly since 2001. We select books every 3-4 months based on a democratic voting process. Meetings run approximately 90 minutes followed by an optional lunch gathering at a local restaurant.

Dismantling White Supremacy Book Group: Our newest book group, DWS meets to discuss nonfiction works covering topics such as race inequity, mass incarceration, white supremacy, and racial bias  in society and within ourselves. As we work as a community to be more actively anti-racist, we also commit to doing the individual work of rejecting the unconscious white supremacy culture in which we live. This group provides a space for processing and learning as we move toward the goal of Beloved Community that is welcoming to all. The group began by reading “How To Be An Anti-Racist” by Ibram X. Kendi, and future selections will be selected with input from the group as a whole.
