First Thursday Book Group meets the first Thursday of each month year-round. Meetings begin at 2:00 p.m. at the homes of members of the group.

Members of the book group read a chosen book and share their thoughts about it, led by a discussion leader. The group reads both fiction and nonfiction. Books for the year are chosen at a potluck luncheon in January.

The First Thursday Book Group is currently at maximum membership. There is a waiting list of those wishing to join the group.
