WHAT WE ARE READING NEXT:


May 22 at 7:00 pm – The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

click on book to reserve


The Nightingale tells the stories of two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals, passion and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path towards survival, love and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France – a heartbreakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the durability of women. It is a novel for everyone, a novel for a lifetime.


June 19 at 7:00 pm – Dear Fahrenheit 451 by Annie Spence

click on book to reserve


If you love to read, and presumably you do since you've picked up this book (!), you know that some books affect you so profoundly they forever change the way you think about the world. Some books on the other hand, disappoint  you so much you want to throw them against the wall. Either  way, it's clear that a book can be your new soul mate or the bad relationship you need to end.

 



July 17 at 7:00 pm – A Piece of the World by Christine Baker Kline

click on book to reserve


As she did in her beloved smash bestseller Orphan Train, Christina Baker Kline interweaves fact and fiction in a powerful novel that illuminates a little-known part of America's history. Bringing into focus the flesh-and-blood woman behind the portrait, she vividly imagines the life of a woman with a complicated relationship to her family and her past, and a special bond with one of our greatest modern artists.


August 21 at 7:00 pm – The Boston Girl by Anita Diamant

click on book to reserve


Anita Diamant's "vivid, affectionate portrait of American womanhood" (Los Angeles Times), follows the life of one woman, Addie Baum, through a period of dramatic change. Addie is the Boston Girl, the spirited daughter of an immigrant Jewish family, born in 1900 to parents who were unprepared for  America and its effect on their three daughters. Growing up in the North End of Boston, then a teeming multicultural neighborhood, Addie's intelligence and curiosity take her to a world her parents can't imagine – a world of short skirts, movies, celebrity culture and new opportunities for women.
