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!
Books for the group are 10% off the month prior to the discussion.

College student Joe Talbert has the modest goal of completing a writing assignment for an English class. His task is to interview a stranger and write a brief biography of the person. With deadlines looming, Joe heads to a nearby nursing home to find a willing subject. There he meets Carl Iverson, who spent 30 years in prison for rape and murder and is now dying of cancer. Carl isn't what Joe had in mind, but he accepts the challenge and, soon enough sets out to prove the man's innocence.

"Reading The Sellout was like experiencing the making of public art. Dark. Humorous. Imaginative. I deeply enjoyed Beatty's refreshing perspective on history in this boldly realized novel." -Kate Stern, Antigone Books

"This final installment of the Neapolitan series finally brings Lila and Elena more closely  geopgrahically. Naively, I thought this would solve many of their problems, but of course their fraught and singular friendship -- and family lives -- only get more complicated.

I found this to be a very satisfying conclusion to a series I adored. I'm telling you, it was hard once I finished to know what I could possibly want to read next..." -Morgan, Antigone Books
