Betsy Lerner’s book about her mom’s fifty-year-old Bridge club provides an unexpected connection across a generational divide between mother and daughter. It’s a funny, intimate, and deeply affecting story where we learn a little about Bridge and a lot about life. Please join us for this special author presentation. Refreshments served. Advance registration is requested.
This event is cosponsored by Wallingford Public Library and Masonicare at Ashlar Village. It will take place at the Knapp Auditorium at Ashlar Village. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
