Book Club


Book Club was a FEAST for our May book Gone With The Wind.  We had all kinds of delicious food which was fun!  Everything from fried chicken to ice cream.  Yum! Yum!

There are so many discussions one could have with this book but we tried to keep it with what we liked about the book and various tidbits of information we had gathered about the author as well some actor/actress back story.

We also spent a little time talking about our next book club book, The Best Yes.

Our Summer Reading Program has the theme of Building a Better World and we thought that the way to begin to build a better world is to start with building better us.  Our two books of the summer will be on this theme. 

Join us on Monday, June 26th at 1pm to discuss this sure to be a conversation piece book.
