Babes with Books

Babes with Books is the Heritage Women’s Book Club, and is open to all women of the congregation and female friends.

The books are selected by participants’ suggestion and general consensus. The selected monthly title is reserved for the group at the Anderson Township branch of the Hamilton County Library. Monthly selections are varied but are typically fiction by current authors. Book selections are made three months prior to the meeting and published in the Heirloom newsletter. The December meeting is always a video night.

Babes with Books prides itself on not taking things too seriously. Having read the monthly book selection is never a limitation to participation. Although the book is discussed, it may be only part of what is often a raucous and ribald evening. Disruptive laughter is the hallmark of a BWB meeting. The group revels in being only “somewhat” intellectual, very supportive and very open to newcomers.
