The Fiction Discussion Group meets on the first Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. Titles are democratically selected by members, usually around a theme, such as "Around the World in 12 Books" or "Year of Doubles."

For further questions or to be put on the group's email list, please write to group moderator Grant Schaumburg at
