The SCCC Book Club meets every few months to discuss an agreed upon book.
At the end of the meeting we agree upon the next book and meeting date. Occasionally,
a movie is seen and discussed in between books.
Book suggestions are encouraged. New members are welcome. If interested in joining, please email SmithCollegeCambridge@gmail.com for location details.
