Book Club

Afternoon Book Club (Meets every 4-6 weeks at 1:00pm)
Next Meeting is Tuesday, December 10 at 1:00pm in Board Room
We will be discussing "The Only Woman in the Room" by Marie BenedictHer beauty almost certainly saved her from the rising Nazi party and led to marriage with an Austrian arms dealer. She devised a plan to flee in disguise from their castle, and the whirlwind escape landed her in Hollywood. She became Hedy Lamarr, screen star. But she kept a secret more shocking than her heritage or her marriage: she was a scientist. And she knew a few secrets about the enemy. She had an idea that might help the country fight the Nazis...if anyone would listen to her.

Evening Book Club (Meets every other month at 7:00pm)
Next Meeting is Monday, December 9 at 7:00pm in Board Room
We will be discussing "A Window Opens" by Elisabeth Egan. Alice Pearse plays many roles. She is a mostly-happily married mother of three and part-time editor. When her husband makes a radical career change, Alice lands a job at a hip young start-up which promises to be the future of reading, with its chain of chic literary lounges and dedication to beloved classics.  Alice is proud of her new “balancing act”until her dad gets sick, her marriage flounders, her kids start to grow up and her work takes an unexpected turn. Alice realizes the question is not whether it’s possible to have it all, but what does she―Alice Pearse―really want?
