Stanford Book Club



Celebrating 15 enjoyable years of sharing books, ideas, and friendship

Book Club meets at 6:30 P.M. on the last Monday of each month at the Lillegard residence. We’d love to have you join us! Inquire at the library for copies of the book.




Many people ask for a list of previously read books. The first couple of years, we didn’t keep a very accurate list, but our “book-keeping” skills are improving! If memory serves us right, this is an almost complete record.
