Bring a brown bag lunch and join us to discuss “A Walk in the Woods,” an entertaining guide to the Appalachian Trail by Bill Bryson. The Appalachian Trail stretches from Georgia to Maine and covers some of the most breathtaking terrain in America—majestic mountains, silent forests and sparking lakes. Bill Bryson introduces us to the history and ecology of the trail and to some of the other hardy (or just foolhardy) folks he meets along the way, plus a couple of bears. This modern classic will make you long for the great outdoors (or at least a comfortable chair to sit and read).
Bring your lunch and join us for a discussion of "The Girls From Ames" by Jeffrey Zaslow. This true story of a group of ordinary women who built an extraordinary friendship, reveals both universal insights and extraordinary personal moments. In preparation for next month's discussion, please bring a favorite book wrapped in brown paper. Write several descriptive words on the outside so we can choose books to read for a "blind date" with a book.
How did your "blind date" with a book go? At the January program, we're each choosing a book to read from a selection brought in by other attendees without being able to see the covers. Today we'll discuss the various books we read. Lunch provided.
Bring a brown bag lunch and join us to discuss “The Leisure Seeker” by Michael Zadoorian, the story of John and Ella Robina, married over fifty years, who each face a life-threatening health issue. Faced with their demise, the couple ‘kidnaps’ themselves to escape controlling adult children and doctors. By taking a forbidden vacation they are determined to prove that, when it comes to life, you can go back for seconds and sneak a little extra time.
