Join us for a friendly discussion with a group of people who love to read and discuss good books. Scheduled to meet monthly on the second Saturday, newcomers are always welcome to join the group. For August, we'll be discussing "Hen Frigates" by Joan Druett. Maritime historian Joan Druett paints an intimate portrait of the courageous wives of sailing ship captains in the 19th century, told for the first time in their own words through journals and letters and takes us into the wildly colorful, dangerous, and romantic world of seafaring women who left friends and families behind to join their husbands at sea.
