The 2015 Schedule For The C.S. Lewis Society of Harrisonburg

The C.S. Lewis Society of Harrisonburg 
2015 Meeting Schedule

Three Kinds of Meetings:
1) Book Discussion: Discussion Leader prepares questions, everyone reads book and comes to the meeting and discusses the book using the questions as a guide.
2) Theme/Topic Meeting: A theme/topic is used as a focus and each member develops their own "take" on the theme/topic and comes prepared to talk for 5 to 10 minutes on the theme/topic and then participate in the resulting discussion.
