Special Interest Groups

AAUW Book Club
The book club meets monthly from September through June  in the homes of our members.  Books are chosen at the September meeting.  Members are selected to be reviewers and the sessions are very interactive.  During the summer months, there are four weekly sessions concentrating on one author or theme.   Books are chosen for their literary value and social significance.   Food for thought is always included.

Conversational Spanish. This is an informal group that meets weekly and offers members an opportunity to converse with others in Spanish.  All levels of fluency are welcome from beginner-plus to native speakers.

Ethnic Cuisines. Our members are very interested in international cuisine.  From September through May,  this luncheon group meets at local ethnic restaurants to socialize and enjoy good food and good times together.

For a More Just Society:  This is a study group created to explore white privilege through selected readings.  The group explores how members can combat racism both internally and externally, in our society as a whole.

International Relations Group:  Members use the Great Decisions model, part of the Foreign Policy Association.  Each session features films, and a textbook discussion on selected global issues.  World problems are not solved, but a more in depth understanding of challenges and issues facing us today is provided.

STAR:  Sisters Together Against Racism.  This group promotes diversity and tolerance among all peoples. Branch members participate in STAR activities and attend meetings and outings.  Our membership is diverse and sharing our different cultures and personal backgrounds bonds our members together.  STAR is a independent group open to all community members.  Many AAUW members participate in STAR activities.

Movie & Discussion Group:  Members meet at local theaters to view selected movies and then  discuss the films over dinner at a local restaurant.

Travel Discussion Group:   AAUW members meet monthly from September to May at local libraries.  The group features slide presentations by members  who discuss past trips taken to locations  throughout the world.  They discuss how to find good tour groups, intellectually focused trips, language study programs abroad, good bargains, and special hints and considerations when visiting certain countries abroad.

Due to the coronavirus, all meetings are offered via Zoom sessions or some have been temporarily suspended.   For more information about these groups, use our contact form. We will have the interest group leader respond to you.
