Book Club Night! Are you in?


Over in our A Lovely Life, Indeed Facebook community, we do various Zoom events for our members to chat in real time and connect face to face, as well as what we do in our daily conversation posts. 

Our latest book club offering is The Light We Carry by Michelle Obama. We'll be meeting on Zoom to discuss this book on February 23, 2023 at 7:00pm ET and we'd love to have you join us!

Here's a summary from Goodreads
In an inspiring follow-up to her critically acclaimed, #1 bestselling memoir "Becoming," former First Lady Michelle Obama shares practical wisdom and powerful strategies for staying hopeful and balanced in today’s highly uncertain world.
There may be no tidy solutions or pithy answers to life’s big challenges, but Michelle Obama believes that we can all locate and lean on a set of tools to help us better navigate change and remain steady within flux. In "The Light We Carry," she opens a frank and honest dialogue with readers, considering the questions many of us wrestle with: How do we build enduring and honest relationships? How can we discover strength and community inside our differences? What tools do we use to address feelings of self-doubt or helplessness? What do we do when it all starts to feel like too much?
Michelle Obama offers readers a series of fresh stories and insightful reflections on change, challenge, and power, including her belief that when we light up for others, we can illuminate the richness and potential of the world around us, discovering deeper truths and new pathways for progress. Drawing from her experiences as a mother, daughter, spouse, friend, and First Lady, she shares the habits and principles she has developed to successfully adapt to change and overcome various obstacles—the earned wisdom that helps her continue to “become.” She details her most valuable practices, like “starting kind,” “going high,” and assembling a “kitchen table” of trusted friends and mentors. With trademark humor, candor, and compassion, she also explores issues connected to race, gender, and visibility, encouraging readers to work through fear, find strength in community, and live with boldness.
“When we are able to recognize our own light, we become empowered to use it,” writes Michelle Obama. A rewarding blend of powerful stories and profound advice that will ignite conversation, "The Light We Carry" inspires readers to examine their own lives, identify their sources of gladness, and connect meaningfully in a turbulent world.
