May Book Club

Sharon Schneider’s choice for the May Book Club is The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. “As London is emerging from the shadow of World War II, writer Juliet Ashton discovers her next subject in a book club on Guernsey--a club born as a spur-of-the-moment alibi after its members are discovered breaking curfew by the Germans occupying their island.” – from the summary on the library’s web site: The club will meet on May 10th at Joan Coss’ home.

The June meeting of the Book Club will be a potluck get-together at Lura Cota’s home.

April Book Club

Joan Coss’ choice for the April Book Club is Prairie Tale, by Melissa Gilbert. A fascinating, heartbreaking, and ultimately uplifting tale of self-discovery from the beloved actress who earned a permanent place in the hearts of millions when she was just a child playing the role of buck-toothed Laura "Half-pint" Ingalls on "Little House on the Prairie." The club will meet on April 12th at Jacquie Wandry’s home.

Hallman, CAE, and pay equity activist, Lilly Ledbetter, called for support of the Paycheck Fairness Act in an op-ed that said: “A year ago today, on January 29, 2009, a new president signed his first piece of legislation into law. The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act restored workers’ rights to challenge illegal wage discrimination in the federal courts.
