June 2024 Book Selection

The Vanishing Half

by Brit Bennett

After identical twin sisters run away from their small black community as teenagers, their lives diverge. Ten years later, one sister lives with her black daughter in the same southern town she once tried to escape. The other secretly passes for white, and her white husband knows nothing of her past. But the twins’ fates remain intertwined, from the Deep South to California, from the 1950s to the 1990s and across generations.

The Meeting Owl

Going south for the winter? Don’t want to travel in severe weather? Don’t worry you won’t have to miss one book club meeting with the Meeting Owl.   The Meeting Owl will bring you and your book club buddies together in our meeting room through the use of Zoom conferencing software. 

You will receive a link to the book club meeting and the Owl will do the rest. As your peers discuss the monthly reading selection the owl will focus on the speaker automatically, so can hear and see “HOOO” is in the room.
