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

Stepping from the pages of Fredrik Backman's international best-selling novel, Ove is the quintessential angry old man next door. When a boisterous young family moves in next door, an unlikely friendship forms as we come to understand Ove’s past happiness and heartbreaks. A Man Called Ove is a thoughtful exploration of the profound impact one life has on countless others.
Discussion on April 9.
The story of Beryl Markham, the first woman to accomplish a solo westward flight across the Atlantic, comes to life in this biographical fiction, from her unconventional upbringing in Kenya to a string of disastrous relationships along her journey to becoming a historical aviator. When Beryl ends a failed marriage to a violent alcoholic, she forms an intimate relationship with charismatic author Karen Blixen. Her most persisting love, however, was for a man she couldn’t have: Denys Finch Hatton, an adventurer and safari guide who also was the love of Karen’s life. Beautifully written and utterly engrossing, Circling the Sun is a wonderful portrait of a complex woman who lived defiantly on her own terms.
Antigone Staff Pick.
Discussion will be on May 14.
