Join others for a engaging conversation over shared food dishes.
A shared dish is not required to attend the book club.
Beach Glass & Other Broken Things is a collection of twenty-three stories about girls and women on the cusp of self-realization. It highlights the complexities of characters becoming who they really are, from a girl who tracks down her absent father, only to discover he's made a whole new life without her; to an eighty-four-year-old grandmother falling in love for the first time; to a woman who finds comfort with an unlikely life coach while grieving over her husband's suicide. Beach Glass & Other Broken Things delves into unimaginable fragility, and unbreakable hope. It celebrates women who are happy or broken, and the ones who save themselves or allow themselves to be saved.
