The Afternoon Pinney book group will host a discussion of This Is How It Always Is by Laurie Frankel. New attendees always welcome. Note: meeting is at Lake Edge Lutheran Church (4032 Monona Dr.). Synopsis: This is Claude. He's five years old, the youngest of five brothers. He also loves peanut butter sandwiches. He also loves wearing a dress, and dreams of being a princess. When he grows up, Claude says, he wants to be a girl. Rosie and Penn want Claude to be whoever Claude wants to be. They're just not sure they're ready to share that with the world. Soon the entire family is keeping Claude's secret. Until one day it explodes.
