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 2018-2019 Book Group Discussions is listed below:

September 22, 2018: Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng.
