Second Sunday Book Group

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.

In eighteenth century Ghana, two half sisters are born into different villages, each unaware of the other. One marries into a life of comfort and royalty, while the other is captured, imprisoned, and sold into slavery. Homegoing follows the paths of these sisters and their descendents from the American Civil War to Jazz Age Harlem. This extraordinary novel illuminates slavery's troubled legacy both for those who were taken and those who stayed--and shows how the memory of captivity has been inscribed on the soul of our nation.
