Duck in a Beach Chair reading

Quarantine may be lifted in Connecticut but that doesn’t mean you can’t love spending a rainy day in or a sunny day at the beach with your favorite read. We can always take solace in our favorite book.

This hour, it’s Where We Live Book Club Hour - summer reads! Now that we can go to the beach and go on vacation, we want to hear what books you’re bringing with you.

Are you returning to old favorites or diving into a new fiction?

We want to hear from you.
