Book Club



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


The Worth A Read Book Club saw a great turnout in January, with participants eager to discuss the month’s title:  Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman.  This quirky, easy-to-read book is incredibly poignant and a sad commentary on victims of abuse.  Book club members liked how the author developed the characters; we had to adjust our opinions as the book progressed.  The storyline is full of humour and the language was brilliant.  Our members rated the book 3.6 Stars.


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 good reading and interesting discussion, contact Sue Jergens ( or Jan Grewar (  Or you can follow along online.
