Interest Groups

AAUW SCV Branch members have varied interests and have established many different groups over the years. Our current categories include:

Afternoon Lit  (previously Evening Lit)

Afternoon Lit is a book club that reads fiction and non-fiction, popular choices and classics. Interested members meet in June and choose a list of books for the following year. On the fourth Tuesday of each month we meet at Panera’s to discuss the author and the book. We attempt to enliven our reading experiences with unique outings. We do not meet in July and August.

Holiday Brunch with author Joanne Fluke

The group meets the third Thursday of each month at 10:30 a.m. at a member’s home. The group discusses a selected mystery each month.
