The group discussed the book To Heal and To Serve: Women Army Doctors in World War Two by Mercedes Graf. The topic of the book was reflected in the exhibit on display in the library at the time, which discussed female physicians during World War I, laying the foundations for what was to come in the book, during World War II.

The Passport Book Club meets monthly for an hour. The February meeting of the Passport Book Club will discuss “How Long ‘Til Black Future Month?,” a collection of short stories by N.K. Jemisin.
