In support of our search for truth and meaning, the UUFCC Book Group meets monthly to discuss a book selected by the members. The selections are a balance of fiction and nonfiction and topics range from classic and modern classic, current fiction, environmental, biography and memoir, and social justice topics. Last Wednesday of each month at 1:30 p.m.


All of the books chosen for this season are readily available at the public library or inexpensively from Amazon.  Mary Jane often has the book in Kindle format and can lend you a reader with the book on it if you can pick it up at the Fellowship.  Contact her if you want one of the books in electronic format.

Contact the bookgroup@uufcc.org if you would like to be added to the email list of members.
