The White Mountains By John Christopher
On an Earth where the Tripods -- huge, three -- legged machines -- have ruled for as long as anyone can remember, thirteen-year-old Will harbors fears about the Capping ceremony he will soon undergo. Capping marks the transition from childhood into adulthood, but it also has a more sinister meaning: It is the Tripods who attach the metal headpieces to people's skulls, and once Capped, a person is forever a slave to them. As Will learns the truth, he realizes that he must escape while his mind is still his own. With two companions, he begins a journey across Europe to find the stronghold of the last free people in the world -- in the White Mountains of Switzerland.

Angry Housewives Eating Bonbons by Lorna Landvik (MN writer)
Sometimes life is like a bad waiter--it serves you exactly what you don't
want. The women of Freesia Court have come together at life's table, fully convinced that there is nothing good coffee, delectable desserts, and a strong shoulder can't fix. Laughter is the glue that holds the five of them together through the decades--the foundation of a book group they call AHEB (Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons)--an unofficial club that
becomes much more. It becomes a lifeline.
Evening Group: Taking a break for a few months.
