Book Groups

Crossroads Summer Book Club

This summer’s selections include four very different books with great facilitators to guide us. We highly recommend finishing each book before the discussion night but we understand that life happens.  Even if you just started reading it, show up anyway and listen to what others have to say. Sign up for the series or per night.
