Book Discussion Group
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 June 7, we are reading The Book of V by Anna Solomon. This kaleidoscopic novel intertwines the lives of a Brooklyn mother in 2016, a senator’s wife in 1970s Washington, D.C., and the Bible’s Queen Esther, whose stories of sex, power and desire overlap and ultimately converge—showing how women’s roles have and have not changed over thousands of years.
This year we are reading:
- June 7: The Book of V by Anna Solomon
- July 5: Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson
- August 2: This Is How It Always Is by Laurie Frankel
- September 6: Land of the Cranes by Aida Salazar
