Only retired RTA members are eligible for membership in RRTA.

RRTA Book & Film Club

Meets monthly at the RTA offices (Conference Room C) at noon for lively discussions over our own “brown bag” lunches.  Instead of assigning ourselves just one book at a time, each month we agree on a “theme” and brainstorm a list of books to read until we meet again.  Questions?  email to maureen.mccarron@gmail.com
We meet next on Tues. June 19, 2018. Our theme will be “Royal Marriages.” Read anything you like on that topic and join us with your thoughts!
