Westwood Hills resident Kim Sherman remembers when she first joined her local book club a decade ago. She was new to the neighborhood and didn’t know many people in the area. Meeting neighbors and relying on them as resources helped build a feeling of security. “[The book club] definitely forged new friendships,” she says. “We spend a good amount of time socializing as well as sharing ideas and thoughts about the book.”
Another book club has formed more recently in the Cedar Manor neighborhood. “We are just getting started,” says founder Debra Bohn.
