This group, which has been meeting for nearly twenty years, reads and discusses fiction, usually by women.  Facilitated by Laurel-Heather Milden, the group chooses recently published novels by authors ranging from the obscure to the well known.

If you have any questions about the group, Laurel-Heather would be glad to help.  Email her at and she asks that you mention the book group name on the subject line.

This group meets on the second Sunday of the month at 2pm.

Don't forget!

Persomi is a poor, white sharecropper’s daughter living in Africa at the dawn of apartheid. Although her world is extraordinarily small, her dreams are much bigger than the expanse of poverty and deprivation surrounding her. As Persomi endures abuse from her alcoholic step-father, she relies on her older brother for support and a connection to the outside world. When he leaves the farm to seek work in a distant city, Persomi’s world is blown wide open. But as her very small world falls apart, bigger dreams become open to her-- dreams of an education, a profession, and of love. As Persomi navigates the changing world around her, she may finally begin to understand who she truly is and where she belongs.

Discussion will be on February 12.
