Chapter 3 normally meets at the homes of members in the afternoon of the 1st Wednesday of the month.

At our meeting in early December, each member suggests a book. We schedule them to try and vary the topics, style, and intensity. We choose older books that are available through the library and try to avoid the obvious best sellers that people have already read. Some recent books included The People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks, The Reason you Walk by Wab Kinew, and The Exiles by Christina Barker Kline. Our 2023 books included Lessons in Chemistry, The Weight of Ink, The Book Thief, and The Dictionary of Lost Words.

Occasionally we view a movie version of the book as we did for The Book Thief. Unlike many book clubs we don't have a formal review of the book. We send out an e-mail before the meeting with a few possible discussion options. So far we have never had a meeting without a lively conversation! Before Covid we had an annual excursion to Stratford to see a play - hopefully we can restart that tradition. To keep members who can't attend a meeting included, each month we share our rating of the book, major topics discussed and our current reading favourites through an e-mail afterwards.
