As the illegitimate half-sister of King Henry II, Marie enjoys life at the court... until the Queen banishes her to a convent because she is deemed unfit for marriage. Marie uses her formidable intellect to build the struggling community of women. Described as a “defiant and timely exploration of the raw power of female creativity in a corrupted world,” Groff’s lyrical prose is a joy to read and earned a spot on NPR’s list of Best Books of 2021.
And, if you’d like to get a head start on upcoming titles, we’ve proposed the following:
July – My Ántonia – Willa Cather
August – Readers’ Circle Vacation – No Meeting
September – Hidden Valley Road – Robert Hendrix
October – The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires – Grady Hendrix
