Senior Planet Book Club: The Mothers

The votes have been counted and in an unprecedented event- we had a tie for our next book choice. The Mothers and Deacon King Kong received equal votes. To break the tie, we decided to select the book that would be easiest for members to get ahold of. 

So we are pleased to announce that our next Online Book Club offering is…..

The Mothers by Brit Bennett

For week one of our Book Club, please read chapters 1-5 by Tuesday, August 18. 

Then come back to and we’ll open a conversation in the comments so everyone can discuss what we read! 

We’ll meet over zoom to discuss the full book the week of August 31. More details to come!
