Meets at 8:30 am on the fourth Wednesday of each month.  We think talking about books is the best way to start a morning, especially when paired with tea and homemade scones! Find out what the next book is below.
Books are available in print, and when possible as an e-book and a digital audiobook. 
We also recommend some of our favorite breakfast options! For a top-quality bakery try Etc. Gourmet Kitchen or for delicious farm-to-fork we suggest Rest Farmhouse Inspired

Chilling, propulsive narrative and unforgettable characters bring this wholly original take on Nazi-obsessed Germany into light as our former gymnast - turned "actress" Jewish Sarah plays strong, Aryan Ursula to rave reviews. She infiltrates a German school for party loyalist's children, where cruelty, cunning and spycraft are employed by everyone - good & evil. Relentlessly paced, this high-octane thriller will keep the pages turning and you thinking long after the book is over. Superb debut by newcomer Matt Killeen. - Maureen
