Event Information

The Book Group meets in the Rollins Center Quiet Study Room, next to the Fireside Lounge at Bucks County Community College, Newtown, from 7:30 to 9:00 P.M. All are welcome to join us on the second Thursday of each month to share your thoughts and questions about any or all of the selections.

This month's discussion will be No Crystal Stair  by Eva Rutland.   Spanning almost 60 years of American history, Rutland's debut family saga chronicles the lives of privileged Ann Elizabeth Carter and Army Air Corps pilot Robert Metcalf--their romance, their struggles, and their ultimate happiness--as it sweeps its characters from the genteel, segregated world of Atlanta's black elite through the rough realities of war, prejudice, and civil rights activism and into the present.
