Surprise! I can meet in August after all! Well, per request, we'll be delving into some autobiographical stuff this month. Just a reminder that this book club is open to ALL members of this meetup. You are not obligated to attend every month; we do have several friendly regulars who enjoy both fresh faces and perspectives. Our discussions are informal. Grab your beverage before we start, as the coffee shop closes at 8pm. Looking forward to seeing you there!

The complete title is: Stolen Innocence: M y story of growing up in a polygamous sect, becoming a teenage bride, and breaking free of Warren Jeffs by Elissa Wall
