Best Lives Book Club
The Best Lives Book Club aims to begin a discussion around how we achieve happiness, success, and finding a purpose in life that is unique to us. Starting with the theme of self-compassion, we'll explore the societal expectations that drive us, common misconceptions, and some of the very real negative outcomes worth avoiding. It will also offer parents lots of great ideas for helping kids along the way. The book club meets on the third Monday of every month in Easton and on the third Wednesday of every month at the Mark Twain Library in Redding. Residents are welcome to participate in either club. The times and dates will differ from those offered at the Easton Library. Copies of the books are available at the Circulation Desk and for curbside pickup. Presented in partnership with Route 2 Prevention.
