Page Turners book group

Page Turners is the DCA’s book discussion group, with monthly meetings that focus on a selected book.  Page Turners members take turns leading these monthly discussions, so that a variety of perspectives are brought to the table.

Are you interested in joining Page Turners?  You do need to be a DCA member, but otherwise there is no fee to join, just the desire to read and understand many good books. The group is led by Co-Chairs Joy Collins and Poppy Holmes. To find out more, contact Poppy at or Joy at

All discussions and events are held on Mondays at 12:30pm at the DCA.
