What a treat for the eight of us who attended the March 16th book club meeting. Gloria served crawdads and succotash in honor of the book under discussion, Where the Crawdads Sing. This novel was written by Delia Owens, who currently resides in N. Idaho, and it takes place in the coastal marshes of North Carolina. Gloria’s food contribution was very much appreciated. For some of us, crawdads were a first … and, for a few of us, maybe a last!
At our next book club meeting on Saturday, April 13th, we’ll be discussing Lisa Wingate’s 2017 New York Times bestseller, Before We Were Yours. The book is a haunting and compelling work of historical fiction, and the story moves between Southern power and prestige in present-day South Carolina and squalor and abuse in the 1930s and 40s in Tennessee. Please join us from 11:30 to 1 on April 13th. For more information, Robin Close, our Library Director, is happy to help.
