The book group will be meeting the fourth Wednesday of each month at 4pm. Our first meeting will be September 22th. At our September meeting you’ll be able to talk about any books that you’re reading at the moment. You’ll also be able to pick up the book for our first official book discussion that will be October 27th.
This program will be replacing the Thursday book group.
Here’s some information about October’s book:
The story of Mary Tudor’s childhood is a classic fairy tale: A princess who is to inherit the throne of England is separated from her mother; abused by an evil stepmother who has enchanted her father; stripped of her title; and forced to care for her baby stepsister, who inherits Mary’s rights to the throne. Believe it or not, it’s all true. Told in the voice of the young Mary, this novel explores the history and intrigue of the dramatic rule of Henry VIII, his outrageous affair with and marriage to the bewitching Anne Boleyn, and the consequences of that relationship for his firstborn daughter. Carolyn Meyer has written a compassionate historical novel about love and loss, jealousy and fear – and a girl’s struggle with forces far beyond her control.
