Information about the club

You're invited:
The group (book club, reading group, whatever) welcomes Mercy grads from every year, at any age.              

What we read: 
We read a mix of fiction and non-fiction, current books and oldies but goodies. We try to pick books that are available in the library system and, if possible, available in paperback. Any member is encouraged to suggest books for the list.

When and where we meet:
The second Monday of the month from 7:30 to 9 p.m. (NO MEETING IN DECEMBER) We meet at the Starbucks in Penfield, at the corner of Five Mile Line Road and Penfield Road (Route 441). In general, we will always try to meet in easy-to-find public places. That way, no one has to clean up her living room. We also want to emphasize the idea that the group is always open to all alumnae.

Finishing the book: 
You don’t have to have finished the book to come to the discussion, but you can’t complain if the other people talk about what happened at the end!
