Annual Picnic

June 14, 2020

Location: Padre Picnic Area, Tilden Park, Berkeley, CA

The Council holds a picnic each summer during which we also conduct a brief annual meeting and board elections. All are welcome to this free event. In addition to holding a short meeting and sharing some tasty food, of course we'll hold a book discussion -- it's what we love to do!


After lunch and the formality of a quick meeting, we'll discuss the mystery novel We Have Always Lived in the Castle by the acclaimed American writer Shirley Jackson.

Please check this site in early 2020 for a flyer with driving directions and additional information about the picnic.

There's no charge, and there's no need to register in advance for the event.​
