New Jersey NFB Book Club Registration Form

From its inception in June 2018 through October 2020, the NFBNJ Sports & Recreation Division sponsored book club meetings.

The book club moderator, Jane Degenshein, is still conducting book club meetings on the second Wednesday of the month at 6 PM with members of the NFBNJ Seniors Division, NFBNJ Sports & Recreation Division, and her peer support group known as ECHO (Eyes Close Hearts Open).
