2022 Annual Meeting and Book Discussion 

Annual Meeting and Book Discussion

July 16, 2022 

10:00 AM by Zoom

Each summer, the Council holds an annual meeting to elect officers and directors, and then the pièce de resistance: a book discussion!

The House on Mango Street book cover


The Annual Meeting starts with the Treasurer's Annual Report, followed by elections of the Council's officers and Executive Committee for the following year.  We will be providing updates on our acvitities. 

Then we'll do what we like to do most: have a book discussion!  

This year’s book is The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros.  “Acclaimed by critics, beloved by readers of all ages, taught everywhere from grade schools to universities across the country, and translated all over the world, this short novel is the remarkable story of Esperanza Cordero, a young Latina girl growing up in Chicago, inventing for herself who and what she will become. Few other books in our time have touched so many readers.”

We’ll be reading the paperback version of this book, ISBN-10: 9780679734772.  It is the Vintage Contemporary Classic 25th Anniversary Edition.  It is available at your local bookstore for $11.95.

The 2022 event will take place online. Please click the link below to register.

Zoom access information will be provided to those who register.

Anyone who has attended a Northern California Great Books event or discussion group during the past year is eligible to vote at the Annual Meeting.  Everyone is welcome to attend the meeting and participate in the book discussion.  There is no charge.
