Author: Maria Semple

The Evening Book Club will be discussing Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple. To her Microsoft-guru husband, Bernadette is a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she's a disgrace; to design mavens, she's a revolutionary architect; and to 15-year-old Bee, she's a best friend and, simply, Mom. Bee has aced her report card and claimed her reward: a family trip to Antarctica. For Bernadette, who has become increasingly agoraphobic, such a trip is problematic. Then Bernadette disappears.

Title: Philomena
Author: Martin Sixsmith

The Afternoon Book Club will be discussing Philomena by Martin Sixsmith. When Philomena became pregnant as a teenager in Ireland in 1952, she was sent to a convent to be looked after as a “fallen woman.” Then the nuns took her baby from her and sold him, like thousands of others, to America for adoption. Fifty years later, Philomena decided to find him. Meanwhile, on the other side of the Atlantic, Philomena’s son was trying to find her.
