Welcome to Book Club: West Portal! This reading group began in 2003 when I was an adult services librarian at West Portal Branch Library. In those pre-pandemic times members from the surrounding neighborhood met at the library for monthly book discussions. Since my retirement in 2019 I’ve continued our meetings, first at the West Portal Branch, then via Zoom when the Pandemic arrived.
What do we read? We read fiction one month, nonfiction the next. Who chooses the books we read and discuss? We all do.
On the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 1:00 pm, members arrive virtually via Zoom for a discussion of that month’s chosen book. Each month I will send the Zoom link a few days ahead of the meeting.
