Social Action

Social Action Book Group

Since September 11th, 2001, the MWP Social Action Book Group has focused on books about the experiences of immigrant populations and the issues that have brought them to this country and our community.  All the books teach us about the strengths and resilience of people in other cultures. The book group meets four times a year on the second or fourth Saturday of the month in March, June, September and December, from 1:30-3pm. 

Please check the calendar for exact dates. If you are interested in more information or would like to be on the book club mailing list, please contact
