Motherhood by the Book is led by Claire, VB staffer, mother of a kindergartner, and stepmother of an adolescent. (And we don't mean board books or indestructibles--You know, the ones with the pages that you can chew.) No, we mean real, honest-to-goodness, grown-up books!
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.

Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness By Alexandra Fuller
A story of survival and war, love and madness, loyalty and forgiveness, Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness is an intimate exploration of Fuller’s parents and of the price of being possessed by Africa’s uncompromising, fertile, death-dealing land.
