Press Release 8/24/15 (Kent, Connecticut) – The 2015 Fall Book Discussion Group at Kent Memorial Library, which begins in mid-September, will start its fall series. The theme for fall is the American Family Chronicle. The reading list includes novels set from coast to coast. In addition to geographic differences, each work proposes a different explanation for the way families turn out.
