When we read, we get to walk around in someone else’s shoes. When we read, we expand our perspective and grow in compassion. When we read, we travel to places and times we will never get to visit. When we read with others, we are motivated and challenged in ways we might not be otherwise, plus we might make a friend or two.

Anyone of any age is welcome to come discuss the book of the month. You don’t even need to have read the book! The conversation is always stimulating and we welcome your contributions.

We are on summer break, but here is our book discussion line-up for the Fall. Get ahead start!

September 6 – Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger

This book received several "Best Book" awards in 2013 and 2014, and was a best seller. A man in his 40s is telling stories from his youth in the early 1960s in the family of a Methodist preacher. You see his take on things at the time and as an adult. Amazon says it is "About the terrible price of wisdom and the enduring grace of God."

October 4 - On the Clock: What Low-Wage Work Did to Me and How it Drives America Insane by Emily Guendelsberger

After the newspaper at which she had worked closed down, Emily worked at an Amazon Fulfillment Center, a call center, and a McDonald's. The book takes the reader behind the scenes at the fastest growing segment of the American workforce. It offers solutions to make the workplace more humane.

November 1 - How the Penguins Saved Veronica By Hazel Prior

This “feel good” book tells the story of a grumpy 85 year-old woman whose life is changed when she opens her heart to a baby penguin and then to her family.

December 6 - The Paris Secret by Nartasha Lester

This is a historical novel about a secret collection of Dior gowns that ties back to female pilots in World War II. Amazon calls it "a story of love and sacrifice."

Happy Reading!
