The book group meets on the second Sunday of every month at 2pm in the Book Fare Cafe for an hour of spirited discussion of books that celebrate the trials, tribulations, and rewards of motherhood, and what it means to be a mother. This group is by no means exclusive to moms with kids still at home, but much of the selection may be geared toward issues that those moms face. We will read fiction, non-fiction, and parenting books.

Bringing Up Bebe by Pamela Druckerman
When American journalist Pamela Druckerman has a baby in Paris, she doesn't aspire to become a "French parent." Even French parents themselves insist they aren't doing anything special. Motherhood itself is a whole different experience in France. There's no role model, as there is in America, for the harried new mom with no life of her own. French mothers assume that even good parents aren't at the constant service of their children and that there's no need to feel guilty about this. They have an easy, calm authority with their kids that Druckerman can only envy.
