The Dovekeepers

December Book Club Selection

The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman is the Adult Book Club selection for December. The following is a brief synopsis:

Black Boy/White School

Black Boy/White School by Brian Walker tackles the idea of identity and belonging. Anthony “Ant” Jones, an East Cleveland native, has been forced by his mother to apply to Belton, a private, preparatory high school in Maine.

Summer of the Gypsy Moths

Stella loves the stability and routine she has living with her great-aunt Louise in Cape Cod.  It’s the exact opposite of the life she had with her flighty mother who abandoned her just before summer.  Still, she can’t help but fantasize that one day her mom will settle down, take responsibility and they will live happily ever after.
