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.

This delightful family read aloud skillfully weaves empathy, compassion and family into a beautifully realized story – universal and timeless – I dare say a new classic, in the mold of Charlotte’s Web (without the talking animals). Ten-year old Louie is trying his best to save a mini-donkey, he named Winston, who was born prematurely and whose mother died giving birth. Louie’s track record is not so good at keeping animals in his care alive, but he has faith in Winslow and gives him everything he has – most especially his love. Louie is sure Winslow will survive, and uses his plight as connection to his older brother Gus’ absence serving in the army. Strong, fully developed characters come to life in Creech’s vividly, and deceptively short novel which will stay with you long after the satisfying last page. - Maureen
