Book Group

AAUW BALTIMORE FIRST MONDAY BOOK GROUP

Please contact AAUW Baltimore for information about time and location of meeting.  The group usually goes out to dinner before the discussion.  Members take turns hosting.  The host picks a restaurant in her neighborhood, and those who want to gather for Dutch-treat dinner at 6:00.  The discussion starts at the host’s house at 7:30 with dessert.  We are currently meeting at 7:00 pm.  As of July 2021, we are returning to meeting at a member’s home, but have not resumed dinner meetings.
