The Monday Book Group meets the second Monday of the month from 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Group Leader: Patrice Wehner

The Senior College Monday Book Group reads a diverse mix of books: history and social issues, historical fiction, science fiction, memoirs, and coming-of age stories, among others. Group members select the titles and take turns facilitating the discussions. We meet the second Monday of each month from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm at the University of Maine Augusta campus, and also provide a Zoom option to accommodate the needs of members who may not be able to attend in person.

The Monday Book Group is not currently accepting new members, as we have reached the maximum capacity to ensure inclusive and interactive discussions. For further information on book group openings, or if you would like to start up another Senior College book group, please contact the Senior College office team.
