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 beside the Book Fare Café (near the calendars) 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, Dec 9, 2pm Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert Emma Bovary is the original desperate housewife. Beautiful but bored, she spends lavishly on clothes and on her home and embarks on two disappointing affairs in an effort to make her life everything she believes it should be. Soon heartbroken and crippled by debts, she takes drastic action, with tragic consequences for her husband and daughter.
