UUFN Book Bums


Our BookClub — The BookBums

We meet the third Friday of each month at 7:00 pm virtually using Zoom to discuss a book that a member has suggested.  The recommender then shares their research on the background of the book and author and leads the discussion, which often results in lively debate. After a general analysis of the work, our conversation sometimes flows into personal applications of the book’s ideas. Check our Reading List below to see this year’s selections and notices about special meetings and field trips. For more information, contact Sandy Schriever directly. You can ask the UUFN Office to put you in touch with Sandy (email officeadmin@uufn.org or call 302.368.2984 during office hours).

In the list below, the date and discussion leader are followed by an Amazon link where you can go to see a description of the book.  Check the Delaware Library Catalog for availability in a variety of formats (books, audio CDs, HOOPLA, and electronic formats).  audible.com and Kindle are other sources you can check.
