Program Description

Event Details

Join us for our Saturday Breakfast Book Club! Each month, we'll read one of the novels & memoirs the New York Times designates as its "Most Notable Books" from the preceding year while enjoying coffee and refreshments. We will meet at 10 am every fourth Saturday to discuss the book.

Our selection for June 2023 will be Detransition, Baby by Torrey Peters. This acclaimed novel follows Reese, a transsexual woman who thought she was close to having it all - all except a baby. But then her girlfriend Amy, destransitioned to Ames, and their world together came crashing down. Ames enters a relationship with his boss, and when they find out she is pregnant, Ames longs to include Reese in this journey to perhaps create an "unconventional family."

Copies of the book will be made available at the library's Circulation Desk. Please sign up below to participate in this month's discussion!
