Reading Group Guides Newsletter

Summer book group meetings often take on a lighter tone. Some members are traveling, and others are tugged away by family obligations. My young moms book group met the other night, and we discussed MRS. EVERYTHING by Jennifer Weiner. We typically meet in a firehouse; this means that no one has to cook or clean, which is lovely. Last month, the air conditioning at the firehouse was broken (it’s since been repaired), and we decided to take our discussion to a member’s home for each of the summer months for a change of pace. Julia was a lovely hostess; she also is an amazing baker and always makes a wonderful creation inspired by the book or its setting. She went for something with cherries here as MRS. EVERYTHING opens in Detroit, and her research noted that Michigan is known for its cherries. Just fabulous!
