Memoirs and Coffee Book Group to Meet

The next meeting of Bernardsville Public Library’s book discussion group, Memoirs and Coffee, will be held on Tuesday, April 22 at 10:30 am in the library’s Community Room.  Pat Kennedy-Grant, Readers’ Services Manager for the library, will lead the discussion of “She Matters: A Life in Friendships” (2013) by Susanna Sonnenberg.  [The author will not be present.] 

The book describes the friendships that have influenced, nourished, inspired and haunted the author through her life, and it is a testimony to the emotional significance of the intense bonds between women. 

Susan Chira wrote in The New York Times, "Sonnenberg demonstrates a self-awareness that is clearly hard-earned, one of the many qualities she has absorbed from her eclectic and generous friends. In the end, that determination to learn from the women who are close to her, to investigate where she failed and where they did, is what gives the book such resonance. 'She Matters' lingers with you, inviting you to construct a patchwork quilt of your own life and salute the many women who helped you along the way."

There is no charge to attend, and no registration is needed to join the discussion.  Call the library at 766-0118 for more information.
