THE WORTH A READ BOOK CLUB

 

             Enjoying Chinese Tea and discussing the book, “The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane”

 

The Worth A Read Book Club meets at 1:30 pm. in the Studio on the fourth Tuesday of each month.  If you would like to join us in person for some stimulating discussion, contact Sue Jergens (sjjergens@gmail.com) or Jan Grewar (jangrewar@gmail.com).

 

In August, the Worth A Read Book Club tackled a top selling memoir by Tara Westover, entitled Educated.  Although we were a small group due to summer holidays, a very spirited discussion took place.  This compelling topical story gives insight into a survivalist family in Idaho and how one young woman rose out of their disfunction.  “Disturbing….fascinating…an important book, yet not for everyone.  Dark. ”   Our members gave it 4.25 stars out of 5.0

In September our book is The Way the Crow Flies by Ann Marie Macdonald .  Local author Esi Edogyan’s best-seller Washington Black comes up in November, followed by a lighter read for January:  Eleanor Olephant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman.  Traditionally the club members celebrate the holiday season with a luncheon and discussion of potential reads for the new year.
