okayMoving Forward Book Group: It’s Okay to Laugh (Crying is Cool Too) 
Wednesday, June 3 at 1:00 pm via Zoom

Join us for Moving Forward, a book discussion series geared towards those who have suffered a loss or tragedy and could use an infusion of hope. In cooperation with Hospice of Central PA, we will be reading books focusing on the redemptive power of the human spirit. June’s choice is It’s Okay to Laugh by Nora McInherny Purmont. It explores universal themes of love, marriage, work, (single) motherhood, and depression through her refreshingly frank viewpoint. A love letter to life, in all of its messy glory, and what it’s like to still be kickin', It’s Okay to Laugh is like a long chat with a close friend over a cup of coffee (or chardonnay).You must have read or listened to the book to attend. Ages 18 and older, please.
