Kellers Church Reads!
Book club will meet on Monday, November 20, at 7:00pm at Panera in Quakertown. Join us as we discuss “The Messy Lives of Book People” by Phaedra Patrick. “Liv Green barely scrapes by as a maid to make ends meet, often finding escape in a good book while daydreaming of becoming a writer herself. So, she can’t believe her luck when she lands a job housekeeping for her personal hero, mega-bestselling author Essie Starling, a mysterious and intimidating recluse. The last thing Liv expected was to be the only person Essie talks to, which leads to a tenuous friendship. But when Essie dies suddenly, a devastated Liv is astonished to learn of her last wish: for Liv to complete Essie’s final novel.”
