Evening Book Group meets Nov 14 at 6:45PM

Your “assignment” is to make a list of 1 or 2 or 3 authors for whom you are thankful as a reader.  Tell us briefly about your choices and share a favorite title or two, if you wish.  These can be fiction or nonfiction writers – poetry or prose.  A list will be compiled with your suggestions and shared with everyone after the meeting.

Afternoon Book Club meets Nov 27 at 2:00 PM

This month we are reading The Promise by Ann Weisgarber.

  1. Young pianist Catherine Wainwright flees the fashionable town of Dayton, Ohio in the wake of a terrible scandal. Heartbroken and facing destitution, she finds herself striking up correspondence with a childhood admirer, the recently widowed Oscar Williams. In desperation she agrees to marry him, but when Catherine travels to Oscar’s farm on Galveston Island, Texas–a thousand miles from home–she finds she is little prepared for the life that awaits her. (Thorndike Press)
