The Book Group explores the portrayal of western North American landscape in fiction, non-fiction, letters, drama, graphic novels, poetry, etc.  The group uses a modified version of the Shared Inquiry™ method developed by the Great Books Foundation. The chosen book of the month must be read in order to actively participate, although participants who only want to listen are welcome. Let the host know. New participants are welcome. When the weather is good and disease rates are low, the group meets outside in appropriate places in the gloriously, beautiful grounds of the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden with appropriate social distancing and masking. Currently the group is meeting In Person at the Arboretum and/or on Zoom.  Be sure to check the dates below for In Person dates and Zoom dates.
