Book Group: February

Book Discussed: Henry's Sisters by Cathy Lamb.

Book group was hosted by Janeen. We had a good discussion of the book, Herny's Sisters. 4 of the 5 members present had read the book and all enjoyed it. Katie facilitated our discussion of the book. We all really liked the characters in the book, especially Henry. We discussed in depth the ability of River to fogive her husband for his absense. We were not sure we could be as forgiving and just pick up where their life together had ended. We all had different thoughts about how well River handled things and if she had other options. We all thought Grandma (Amelia Earhart) was a hoot!

Food from Book Group: Papa Murphy's Delite Pizza, Artichoke Dip/Veggies, and Chocolate Zuchini Cake.

The March meeting of Wine, Women and Words book club will be hosted by Kari. Details of the location will be coming soon. We will be discussing the The Glass Castle: A Memoir by Jeanette Walls (288 pages).

The Glass Castle - Discussion Questions

Five member met to discuss 19 Minutes by Jodi Picolut. We had a good discussion and made it through the questions. We all liked the book. The book led to discussions about societies role in desensitizing our children to violence, etc. Discussed how things are today vs. when we were teens.

Book Club: November

Book Club in November was hosted by Michelle. Michelle and Katie were the only members that were able to attend. Neither had finished the book, so little book discussion occurred. The great thing about us is we can always find something to talk about! They almost had a bottle of Moscato, until Michelle realized she didn't own a corkscrew! They enjoyed a few appetizers, cheesecake bites and homemade hot chocolate (yummy!). It was a small gathering, but they enjoyed themselves!

Happy Reading!
