December Book Discussion Group

Join us for book discussion, December 12, 2023 at 2:00 p.m. when we discuss Lavender House by Lev AC Rosen

Lavender House, 1952: the family seat of recently deceased matriarch Irene Lamontaine, head of the famous Lamontaine soap empire. Irene’s recipes for her signature scents are a well guarded secret—but it’s not the only one behind these gates. This estate offers a unique freedom, where none of the residents or staff hide who they are. But to keep their secret, they’ve needed to keep others out. And now they’re worried they’re keeping a murderer in.

Irene’s widow hires Evander Mills to uncover the truth behind her mysterious death. Andy, recently fired from the San Francisco police after being caught in a raid on a gay bar, is happy to accept—his calendar is wide open. And his secret is the kind of secret the Lamontaines understand.

When your existence is a crime, everything you do is criminal, and the gates of Lavender House can’t lock out the real world forever. Running a soap empire can be a dirty business.

November Classics Book Club

Join us 11/28/23 at 2:00 p.m. when we discuss The Tempest by William Shakespeare

Generally considered the last play written by William Shakespeare, The Tempest is remarkable for being one of only two plays by Shakespeare (the other being Love’s Labor’s Lost) whose plot is entirely original. Though the play draws on travel narratives of the period and contains echoes of other writings…, The Tempest remains Shakespeare’s own fantastical invention.  Read more at the Steppenwolf.

Ask at the desk to get a copy of this play.
