Quick Steps

Fall 2020 - Jan 2021 Book Discussion Series

Just because we can't hold dance classes doesn't mean we can't be active in other ways. A book discussion club has been formed. On its agenda are three stories of Irish interest:

Every member who is interested in participating must sign up. Contact Sonja via her email. Discussion sessions will be done via Zoom on designated Tuesdays; see our events calendar. Participants will get an email from Tom O. with connection instructions a week before the discussion date. There will also be an outline of ideas for discussion.
