CMWA Book Club

The CMWA Book Club meets once a month on campus, on the 3rd Wednesday, from Noon-1:30pm. Meetings are held in Cohon Center with the room number announced through an email distribution list. Discussions are informal and lively. For more information contact Alice Bright.

Books can be suggested by anyone in the group and the selection is wide-ranging: fiction, nonfiction, new and old. We have a full list of books read by the CMWA Book Club since 1994.
