Book Club

 Read a great book, join a meaningful conversation and strengthen literacy in women.


The DOP Foundation Inc. BOOK CLUB is back…

Starting in March watch for some book suggestions on our website and on FB. Maybe you are looking for a good book to curl up with or to suggest to a book group you belong to.

As March 8th is International Women’s Day, we invite you to read our choices focusing on women authors and strong women. Pass on this news to other members and friends.

For more information please contact the chair of the Book Club,
Jeannie Kouros or  PGP Celia Kachmarski / Linda Belba
