Pasadena Covenant Church – Women’s Book Club

Covenant’s Women’s Book Club was started in January 1989. Since that time, a great variety of books have been read and discussed. To preserve the titles for future reference and for newcomers to the group, the books are listed by year when that information is available and just the titles prior to that time. Book club meets the 4th Monday of each month.
