FreeThinkers’ Book Club Members choose books to read next year

At their final meeting of the year, the FreeThinkers held a pitched contest to choose selections for next year. Members were invited to pitch one or two books, telling us why the book was both interesting and useful (or just plane fun), as well accessibility, format details, costs, library availability etc. Then each member was allowed 7 votes (one for each month the Club meets next year.

And the winners are:

If you would like your name added to the FreeThinker mailing list please email web@westwoodunitarian.ca.

Finally you may wish to reserve any of the titles above from Edmonton Public Library, as some titles have a limited number of copies – and some have many holds already.
