Join our flock for good reads, friendship and drinks! The group will meet once a month in Hampden. Each month, I will post a poll of the books suggested by the members so we can vote! Non-book related meet ups are also welcome!
Build your own mimosa bar? Bacon? Book exchange? Whats not to like! Come join us on Sunday, June 2, 2019 at 11:30am at Five at Dime for brunch and book exchange. Bring one of your favorite books (doesn't have to be new) and we will exchange, white elephant style! Hope to see you there!
Hello everyone! This month, we will be reading Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly. We will be meeting at the Food Market, which has the best happy hour!
About the book:
Caroline Ferriday is a former Broadway actress and liaison to the French consulate whose life is forever changed when Hitler’s army invades Poland in September 1939—and then sets its sights on France. An ocean away from Caroline, Kasia Kuzmerick, a Polish teenager, sinks deeper into her role as a courier for the underground resistance movement. In Germany, Herta Oberheuser, a young doctor, answers an ad for a government medical position—only to find herself trapped in a male-dominated realm of Nazi secrets and power.
The lives of these three women are set on a collision course when the unthinkable happens and Kasia is sent to Ravensbrück, the notorious Nazi concentration camp for women. Their stories cross continents, as Caroline and Kasia strive to bring justice to those whom history has forgotten.
