Library Book Group

 

Adult Book Club

The Book Discussion Group will be reading “Secret Daughter” by Shilpi Somaya Gowda for their February selection. This first novel by the author “explores powerfully and poignantly the emotional terrain of motherhood, loss, identity, and love through the experiences of two families—one Indian, one American—and the child that binds them together.”

The next meeting will be on Wednesday, February 6 at 10AM.
