Caregivers Book Discussion Group

Do you love to read and enjoy discussing books? Then join other caregivers and family members to share your experiences while conversing with likewise individuals in the caregiver’s book discussion group. The discussion group is held the first Saturday of the month at 10:00 am at the Oxon Hill Library.

Stories are how we understand our world. Books are not separate from the rest of our lives, the characters, ideas, dilemmas, and behaviors we observe through books help us to understand everything else that surrounds us. This is the reason for the Caregivers Book Club. We want to hear about your caregiving experiences, your caregiving memories, and your caregiving life and with all its peaks and valleys as we read books that we otherwise might not, and be a part of a community sharing similar experiences.
