Tired of book clubs that tell you not to come unless you've actually finished the book? Tired of getting the evil eye from everyone in the group because you're the only one who hated the book that they're raving about? Tired of book snobs sneering at your suggestion for next months read? If you are.. we're the book group for you.
We'll collectively pick books and each month and we'll try to find the time in our busy lives to actually read it. But if your job gets crazy, your kids get the flu, or you just don't finish it because you hated it, we'll still get together to discuss the parts of it we actually read. And while we're at it we'll share some drinks and possibly some food and we'll appear to be smarter as we say to our other friends and co-workers "I can't go. I have book club that night."
Please don't misunderstand. YOU SHOULD PLAN ON AT LEAST TRYING TO READ THE BOOK. Or at least buy a copy to bring with you to the discussion so you can leaf through it frantically in an attempt to have something to add to the conversation. Or just drink an extra glass of wine and blurt out the first thing that comes to mind. There's no judgement here.
If the world has reopened and we all feel safe we'll change this to an in person meeting.
2 CHILDREN FOR SALE
The sign is a last resort. It sits on a farmhouse porch in 1931, but could be found anywhere in an era of breadlines, bank runs and broken dreams. It could have been written by any mother facing impossible choices.
For struggling reporter Ellis Reed, the gut-wrenching scene evokes memories of his family’s dark past. He snaps a photograph of the children, not meant for publication. But when it leads to his big break, the consequences are more devastating than he ever imagined.
Inspired by an actual newspaper photograph that stunned the nation, Sold on a Monday is a powerful novel of love, redemption, and the unexpected paths that bring us home.
