The Discussion Table Book Club

The CFJC’s Community Book Club has read and discussed 6 books together, and we welcome you to join us for Book #7! This opportunity is open to anyone – donors, nonprofit partners, and community members. The Discussion Table Book Club is an informal space for professional development, networking, and learning. Our book for this winter is “The Light We Carry” by Michelle Obama. We read small sections and meet together virtually via Zoom to discuss the section together – feel free to join us even if you haven’t finished (or started) the section! Details on schedule and reading assignments are below.

Book Club Discussions

Our Book Club meets bi-weekly on Thursdays, from 10-11am via Zoom. We hope you’ll be able to join us for any & all of the discussions below – whether or not you’ve read the section! Our Book Club is a casual, conversational, engaging space for connection and learning together. Please register at the links below to join in the conversation. Have questions? Email We hope you’ll join us!
