BOOKS + FRIENDSHIPS + SHOPPING
GET THE BOOK
Shopping & Books!!! What could be better? Bring a friend and come on down for a girls night to remember. We start out with a fun walk through of our new arrivals, followed by a half hour of shopping and special book club discounts...but there is more! After we shop, grab a beverage and get ready as we will discuss the highlights, and you can hear other perspectives and questions from our monthly book. Meet new friends and have fun with our monthly book club meetups!
What to bring: A beverage or snack to share and a chair if you would like one.
Our book club pic: The Vanishing Half by Britney Bennett.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
From The New York Times-bestselling author of The Mothers, a stunning new novel about twin sisters, inseparable as children, who ultimately choose to live in two very different worlds, one black and one white.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Vignes twin sisters will always be identical. But after growing up together in a small, southern black community and running away at age sixteen, it's not just the shape of their daily lives that is different as adults, it's everything: their families, their communities, their racial identities. Many 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. Still, even separated by so many miles and just as many lies, the fates of the twins remain intertwined. What will happen to the next generation, when their own daughters' storylines intersect?
WE WILL MEET UP TO DISCUSS ON TUESDAY, AUGUST 18th FROM 7-8:30PM AT OUR BENICIA SHOP.
