Booked for the Evening

Thursday, December 14 at 6:30 PM
No registration required

We will be discussing “Truly, Madly, Guilty” by Liane Mariarty: Sam and Clementine have a wonderful, albeit busy, life. If there’s anything they can count on, it’s each other. Clementine and Erika are each other’s oldest friends. But theirs is a complicated relationship, so when Erika mentions a last-minute invitation to a barbecue with her neighbors, Tiffany and Vid, Clementine and Sam don’t hesitate. Having Tiffany and Vid’s larger-than-life personalities there will be a welcome respite. Two months later, it won’t stop raining, and Clementine and Sam can’t stop asking themselves the question: What if we hadn’t gone?” You are welcome to join us even if you haven’t yet read the book.

Storyteller Mary J. Grant as Sojourner Truth

Join storyteller Mary J. Grant as she explores the life and influence of Sojourner Truth. Truth was born into slavery, obtained her freedom and became an influential abolitionist and suffragist.
