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 availble 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 delcious farm-to-fork we suggest Rest Farmhouse Inspired.

Illegal is a poignantly moving story with a rich cast of characters, deeply relevant storylines, and rich with the deepest human kindness and endurance. Not without touches of levity and joy, but emotionally impactful where its important, we follow a young boy on his search for his brother, trying desperately to keep his family together when it seems the world is set on tearing him and his siblings apart in the search for a better life. Heartbreaking and hopeful, this story about the journey of an illegal immigrant hits fast and hard, with severe social importance at this time in our world. - Isabel
