South Church Spiritual Book Group 


The South Church Spiritual Book Group hosts monthly book discussions. All are welcome, even if you haven't read the book. We read an eclectic selection of books voted on each March from a slate of books nominated by participants. We do not meet in January or February. 

All book discussions currently take place in the Emerson Sitting Room at the bottom of the basement stairs at 7pm on the second Wednesday of the month, unless otherwise noted in the schedule.
