What happens at a USC Book Club meeting?

According to Beth Erlanger, Recreation & Leisure Chair of the Community Foundation of Upper St. Clair… “We wait for people to arrive, get reacquainted, and jump right into discussing the book. First we share our opinions. Then, I try to have a few discussion questions with me so we go over those.”

Why was it formed?

“I started it because I’ve run into people who like to read and say that they’d love to join a book club, but don’t know where to find one. I felt that we could have one that is open to anyone.”

When and where does it meet?

The second Thursday of every other month starting in September…

Next meetings: May 11, 2017, September 14, 2017, November 9, 2017

It is offered at two times: 11:00 a.m. and repeated at 7:00 p.m.

USC Community & Recreation Center

What do I have to do?

“People usually read at least a portion of the book ahead of time. They buy it in print or for their e-reader, or check it out of the library (which is what I usually do).  If they haven’t read the book, that’s okay, too. We’ve had some people who have come before who felt they were in a rut and just needed to get out of the house to find some motivation to read again. Even if someone has read it and has nothing on which to comment, that is fine.”
