Read a review of this book by one of our participants



Free Days with George, by Colin Campbell

"We had a good discussion, with each member contributing a unique perspective. For example, one member mentioned that in his home country dogs are to remain outdoors and are not valued in the same way they are in North America. It was a congenial meeting with stories that were funny and some that were more reflective. Overall, this was a terrific meeting for everyone involved." - Book club facilitator
