Hello Summer Book Club 📚🏖 –

We have selected three wonderful books to read this summer!

Our August 3rd selection is the #1 New York Times best selling novel – “The Vanishing Half” – by Brit Bennett, our August 17th choice is comedian and satirist Trevor Noah’s best selling “Born a Crime” and our August 31st selection is the award-winning “Child Bride” by our island’s own Jennifer Smith Turner. All of the books promise to be page-turners that you won’t want to put down and stories that will bring rich discussion.

We are especially excited to report that Jennifer Smith Turner will be joining us for our August 31st discussion! (

We will be hosting via Zoom and all of the sessions will be held at 6:30 pm ET

Please consider purchasing your book from an Island bookseller to support our local community during this difficult time. There are even signed copies of Child Bride available at these locations if you’d like this keepsake. All of the books can also be ordered as ebooks for your Kindle, etc.

Please RSVP below to obtain the Zoom Links which we will send out closer to the event dates to those who have signed up. If you plan to join us – please indicate which evening you’d like to take part.

Happy Summer!
Monica Lyle
