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.

Don't forget!

New York Times Bestselling author Carolyn Parkhurst tells the tale of the Hammonds, a seemingly average family with a hidden secret: their oldest daughter, Tilly, has an undiagnosed condition that causes erratic behavior and social difficulty, resulting in her expulsion from the last school in her family’s hometown. When Tilly’s mother, Alexandra, has almost run out of options to help her troubled yet remarkably intelligent daughter, she turns to Camp Harmony and the wisdom of child behavior guru Scott Bean for a solution. A fresh start in the woods of New Hampshire takes a dark turn with the momentum of an emotional thriller that will leave readers transfixed to the very end.

Told with equal measures of humor and heartbreak, Commonwealth is a brilliant and tender tale of the far-reaching ties of love and responsibility that bind us together.
