A rather special group that restricts its choices to include only books that are available in an audible format. Most members read the print version, but some members of the group are unable to do so and read by listening. The opinions are always varied and firmly held leading to an exhilarating and amusing debate. We choose ten books with at least one from each section: Canadian Fiction, International Fiction, Classic and Non-fiction.
This year's book selections are:
- Novel Women - 3rd Tuesday 1:30 p.m.
- Convenor: Mary Daniels
- The Novel Women Group meets in members’ homes on the third Tuesday of each month starting at 1:30 p.m. Our reading list for this year is an eclectic selection of fiction and non-fiction books.
