The Fiction Discussion Group meets on the first Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. Titles are suggested by members and then chosen to obtain a variety of authors, publication dates, themes, and lengths.

This group is currently at capacity. For further questions, or to be put on the group's wait list, please email moderator Justine Hebert at

We offer meetings through a virtual platform and in-person with a hybrid connection. Please contact the group moderator with questions.
