VB Reads...Motherhood by the Book
Village Books, Sunday, August 10 at 2pm
Motherhood by the Book is led by Claire, VB staffer, mother of a toddler, and stepmother of an adolescent.

The book group meets on the second Sunday of every month at 2pm on the mezzanine level, next to our poetry section and near 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.

Sun, Aug 10, 2pm


When BETTY MACDONALD married a marine and moved to a small chicken farm on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State, she was largely unprepared for the rigors of life in the wild.
