The Book Discussion Group meets virtually on Zoom at 7:30pm on the second Monday of each month 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 any discussion.

For more information, contact Kaye Bonney or Leslie Vallerga.

For April 10, we are reading Worn:A People’s History of Clothing by Sofi Thanhauser. “A masterpiece of investigative reporting and a riveting adventure story, Worn is both panoramic and richly particular…Thanhauser is the best of guides: humane, engaging, generous with historical anecdote and always able to reveal the telling detail. She shows how the cost of fashion far exceeds any retail price tag, and how the revival of venerable traditions might yet lead us to a sustainable future.” – Geraldine Brooks, The New York Times bestselling author of The Secret Chord.
