Motherhood by the Book is led by Claire, VB staffer, mother, and grandmother.
The book group meets on the second Sunday of every month at 2pm in the Readings Gallery at Village Books, 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. We read fiction and non-fiction, older and newer titles, all with the theme of Motherhood. Join us!
Sunday, June 12, 2pm Note: Author Susan Greisen will join us for this discussion!

A young woman defies her parents' demands to become a farmer's wife. At age nineteen, with a suitcase full of farm-smarts and a license to be a practical nurse, Susan joins the Peace Corps in Africa. She meets multiple challenges in her remote Liberian village and falls short of her unrealistic goals. An interracial romance further aggravates her parents who eventually disown her. When Susan finds the pink flamingos, she discovers what she had been searching for all along. Her journey is one of passion, strength and finding forgiveness and unconditional love.
