About the Leisure Reading Group

Meet new people and cultivate the habit of reading for leisure. Participants vote on a book for the semester then hold discussions about the chosen title in an informal, friendly group. Each participant will receive a free copy of the book. The Zoom meetings will be held on alternating Thursdays from 3:00 to 4:00 pm.

If you have any questions or want to join, please contact Jane Ishibashi, Librarian, at jishibashi@fullcoll.edu.
