The Book Discussion Group meets the first Monday of the month at 7:30 for a lively talk about our reading. Books are chosen by member consensus – both fiction and nonfiction, usually current, but we read some classics, too.  Everyone is welcome to join throughout the year; we hope to see you virtually during one of our Zoom discussions.

For more information, contact Kaye Bonney or Leslie Vallerga.

For September 6, we are reading This Is How It Always Is by Laurie Frankel. Claude is five years old, the youngest of five brothers, and loves peanut butter sandwiches. He also loves wearing a dress, and dreams of being a princess. When he grows up, Claude says, he wants to be a girl. Claude’s parents want Claude to be whoever Claude wants to be. They’re just not sure they’re ready to share that with the world. Soon the entire family is keeping Claude’s secret. Until one day it explodes.
