Book Club
The League of Women Voters Aurora Area Book Club chooses books to challenge our thinking about critical issues. The discussion is always friendly, lively, and enlightening. Join us at our next discussion. All are welcome, including non-members.

Upcoming book discussion: 

We are back and meeting outdoors in a socially-distanced fashion! Join us on Thursday, September 17th at 5:30 p.m. at Wesley United Methodist Church (14 N May Street, Aurora, IL). Please bring your own chair and whatever you wish to drink. If the weather is not good, we are able to meet in the church with masks and following social distancing guidelines of 6 feet apart.

For this discussion, everyone is bringing the book that they've read on the topic of racism in America. Everyone will share what they've learned from the book they've read.
