Deer Readers Book Club

2021 Schedule

Deer Readers Book Club Organizer Alice Stark will begin by holding our meetings via Zoom, but this could change depending on the COVID-19 situation this summer. 

Please RSVP if interested in participating and she will send you the link for participation.

The DLA Deer Readers Book Club is a co-ed group, with everyone welcome.  It is fun to have both the male and female insight into the books we read. The reading list for 2021 was established at the end of last season.  Our host will also be our discussion leader.           

The start time is 4:00 for each date, normally the fourth Tuesday of the month (except September).  We ask that everyone RSVP TO ALICE for each session.  Afterwards, we can continue with a Zoom Happy Hour.

PLEASE RSVP for the Zoom Link!
