Book Club

GSB parents and alumni parents are invited to be a part of the PA Book Club this fall to discuss our next interesting and entertaining read.

Current Book Discussion

Anxious People by Fredrik Backman

A novel that “captures the messy essence of being human…It’s clever and affecting, as likely to make you laugh out loud as it is to make you cry” (The Washington Post).  Head Librarian, Kristen Armstrong will be our moderator.

The Anxious People book discussion is planned for November 3, 2021.
For your convenience, we will have a morning and evening discussion.

In support of local businesses, Bookworm in Bernardsville is stocking the book and will give a 15% discount; just mention that you are part of GSB. If you have any questions, please send an email to the Book Club Chairs, Michelle Leo at or Monica Micera at

Previous Book Club Reads:

Our first recommended book was Stamped - Racism, Anti-Racism, and You by Jason Reynolds and Dr. Ibram X Kendi, a powerful book that gives a historical basis for where we find ourselves today.  

Our second recommended book was Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella, a young adult novel that portrays a teen's life and touches on mental illness and how it affects the protagonist's family.

Our third recommended book was The Vanishing Half by Britt Bennett, a book about identical twins taking two very different paths in life. This riveting story explores how our past shapes us and looks at identity and what it means to stay true to ourselves.
