All Channing Book Discussion Group

The All Channing Book Group meets in odd-numbered months to discuss a chosen book.  We have two separate discussions of the same book to give readers an option for their schedule. Generally, we will meet on the second Thursday and the second Saturday at the 3677 Park Avenue location in Ellicott City.

Attendees do not have to sign up in advance.   We ask that you read the book, or at least make a good faith effort to do so.   Please bring a comment, observation or question for the group to help the group have a discussion of the book.
