The MERA Book Club meets regularly every month September through to June at the MERA schoolhouse.
Meetings are usually held the 4th Tuesday of each month from 7pm to 9pm. We are a friendly, respectful, no rules book club. Each month one person will facilitate a discussion about the book chosen for that month. Discussions are always informative and lively. New members are welcome. If you see a book that peaks your interest and would like to join us for an evening’s discussion we also welcome drop-ins. You can join us by contacting Jean Dunning at 613-259-2636 or email here.
