The Book Club of Grosse Ile

78 members | Grosse Ile, Michigan

Established in 1934 as a response to the lack of a library on the Island, The Book Club of Grosse Ile has developed a distinct, unique identity.  This book club is composed of scholarly women, who are looking for the challenge and stimulation only quality literature can bring.  Books are rotated twice a month, which gives members the opportunity to read over 20 new books per year.  There are three speakers during the year, most of whom are authors, who shine light on various subjects including the writing process.  In addition, two book discussions allow members to interact and reflect on current literature and topics.  Coming together for various activities brings about joyful, spirited interaction among members.  The Book Club of Grosse Ile supplies everything a book club promises, and more!
