    The Needham Historical Society has a new Book Group!

    Our upcoming meeting schedule is below.  All who enjoy reading books based on history are welcome!  You are also  invited to bring some suggestions for future books.

    Criteria for future reads are any work that is based on history and is easily available at the Library, in paperback and/or e-reader.  Fiction is welcome, as long as the history is good.
