New Book Clubs

The summer is over so it is time to "get down to business" and join one of Maud Marks three book clubs starting this month!  Next week we will be hosting an evening book club.

Starting Monday, Sept. 9 at 7 PM the club will be reading Eleanor of Aquitaine: A Life by Alison Weir. Eleanor was the Mother of Richard the Lionheart and King John of England.  She was queen of both England and France through two marriages.   A fascinating woman and a fascinating read.

Thursday, Sept. 12 at 1 PM the club will be reading The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom. This book attempts to discover what people would change if they could control time.  It's about time. ha ha!
