The Catholic Readers Book Club meets once a month to discuss selected books and their application to our personal, social and spiritual lives as Catholic Christians.
Participants in the club choose books of literary merit which reflect basic Catholic convictions about human existence -- the value of community, beauty, truth, hope and reconciliation.
The book club meets on the first Monday evening of the month (September through May), 7:00-8:30pm, at Rosewood Estate 1117 Maxhelen Blvd., Waterloo. [map]
