Book Club

The Book Club meets once a month, on a Monday evening at 7:30 PM. The most interesting aspect of the Book Club discussions have been the different cultural prisms through which the participants have interpreted issues. These sessions promote an understanding and appreciation of each other's opinions, feelings and culture.

For participation, please contact: Sushma Prasada Tel: (514 931 0942)
