Join us for our November Book Club on Tuesday November 19th at 7pm where we will be discussing The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh. Join us at the home of our Young Alumnae Liaison, Lauren Mizrahi and bring a bottle of your favorite beverage or favorite app to share.

A mesmerizing, moving, and elegantly written debut novel, The Language of Flowers beautifully weaves past and present, creating a vivid portrait of an unforgettable woman whose gift for flowers helps her change the lives of others even as she struggles to overcome her own troubled past. This book picks up where the court system leaves off, as children turn 18 and move out of the courts. This book will be an especially interesting read given it’s ties to the similar tones and environments of CASA.

The Casual Vacancy – Book Club – May 2nd, 7pm

Casual Vacancy

Please join us for our next book club! We’ve been reading J.K. Rowling’s novel, The Casual Vacancy.

Her first book directed towards an adult audience, The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling’s most recent published work. The novel explores life in an idyllic provincial English town and how the sudden death of one of it’s most involved patrons affects the entire community – from those who loved him to those who loved to hate him. The novel is blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising.

Our group will meet on Thursday, May 2nd at 7pm at the home of our Book Club Chair Kailey Haught

Please RSVP to the Evite for more details.

Cinderella Ate My Daughter – Book Club – February 5th, 7:30pm

CAMD-paperback

Our next Book Club is right around the corner! We’ve been reading another New York Times Best Seller: Cinderella Ate My Daughter by Peggy Orenstein.

A non fiction work, Orenstein searches for answers on how the messages our society sends to young girls affect the types of women they become. Being a princess is just make-believe; eventually they grow out of it . . . or do they ? In search of answers, Orenstein visited Disneyland, trolled American Girl Place, and met parents of beauty-pageant preschoolers tricked out like Vegas showgirls. The stakes turn out to be higher than she ever imagined. From premature sexualization to the risk of depression to rising rates of narcissism, the potential negative impact of this new girlie-girl culture is undeniable—yet armed with awareness and recognition, parents can effectively counterbalance its influence in their daughters’ lives.

Join us on Tuesday, February 5th at 7:30pm at the home of our Membership Chair Katie Ziegenhirt for a night of food, fun, and some book discussion.

Please RSVP to the Evite for more details.

The Happiness Project – Book Club – November 14th, 7:30pm

Mark your calendars — our club’s next book should be a great one. We’ll be reading

New York Times Best Seller The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin.

In this lively and compelling account, Rubin chronicles her adventures during the twelve months she spent test-driving the wisdom of the ages, current scientific research, and lessons from popular culture about how to be happier. Among other things, she found that novelty and challenge are powerful sources of happiness; that money can help buy happiness, when spent wisely; that outer order contributes to inner calm; and that the very smallest of changes can make the biggest difference.

Join us on November 14th at 7:30pm at the home of one of our newest Alumnae members, Charlotte Crawford.
Please RSVP to the Evite for more details.
