VSDC BOOK CLUB

The Veg Society of DC (VSDC) Book Club meets once each month, usually the last Wednesday at 7:30 pm. Since March 2020 the group has primarily been meeting online. Our books alternate between fiction and nonfiction, and can be about any topic. VSDC members and friends who have read at least half the book are welcome.

BOOK SELECTIONS

At the end of each Book Club meeting, participants vote on whether they would recommend the book — yes, no, or “other.” We started asking this question at the April 1993 meeting. (Votes before then may not reflect all the participants.)
