Narrative Non-Fiction Book Group

Narrative Nonfiction Book Club Fall 2022 - Winter 2023 Book Picks

Consider this your invitation to read and discuss narrative nonfiction! We will be reading across the genres of nonfiction, from history to adventure, memoir/biography, and beyond with books that read like a novel. You can view past book group selections here.

We meet on the 1st Thursday of every month from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM. The group will meet in the Hermann meeting room and for those who wish to join us from home, you can join us via Zoom.
