Book Group

The SIR Book Group is a discussion group for Sirs who are interested in increasing their reading enjoyment by reading a book a month and meeting to discuss it. For each book, one Group member presents additional research on the author and literary and academic criticisms. Discussions are invariably energetic and stimulating and frequently generate broader ideas that interest the group. 

To get the year going, the members submit their suggestions for books during October and Book Group members vote on 6 fiction and 6 non-fiction books for the year. The selections invariably reflect the extremely varied interests within the group and expose many of us to books we would never have otherwise read. As the adage goes, “Books follow you home, pry open your head, and rearrange the things inside.”

We meet at 10:30 AM on the first Tuesday of each month at:

 Round Table Pizza

 2960 Treat Boulevard

 Concord, CA


Chairman: Ron Rizzo


Asst. Chairman – Phil Trapp
