Book Group Discussions

The WNBA Book Group serves as a community outreach program open to all, connecting Nashville book lovers with the members and activities of WNBA. We partner with the Nashville Public Library and hold our meetings at the Richland Park Library on Charlotte Avenue on selected Saturday mornings from 10:15 to 11:30 a.m. During the last few minutes of each meeting, everyone will have a chance to share information about any interesting books that they have read during the past few months. The schedule for the 2017-2018 Book Group Discussions is listed below:

September 16, 2017: The Girls of Atomic City by Denise Kiernan. Libby Simons will be leading the discussion.
