The Bookish Sort Book Club met Thursday, Oct 4, at 5:30 PM in the meeting room of the Hawthorne Branch Library. Seven of us discussed My Cousin Rachael by Daphne du Maurier.
Future selections are as follows:
Nov 1 Literary Pot Luck*
Dec 6 Plainsong Kent Haruf ??
Jan 3 ** Barracoon Zora Neal Hurston Flo
Feb 7 ** The Bite of History Caroline Anaya ??
* Bring a quote about food from a book and the dish reflected in that quote to share.
The ** indicates that these two selections might need to be interchanged depending on the availability of the book and Flo Turcotte’s schedule. We need volunteers to lead the discussion of the December and February selections. Remember to start thinking about your dish for the November Literary Pot Luck. Please plan to bring the quote that inspired your selection along with a dish to share.
