Book Club




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


In October, members of the Worth A Read Book Club had a rousing discussion about Washington Black, the latest novel by Victoria author Esi Edugyan.  Edugyan has won the Giller Prize for her current work, as well as her previous novel, Half Blood Blues.  Some of our members felt that Washington Black was a challenging read, but most agreed that it was beautifully crafted.  Overall our average score for the book was 3.6 stars.

If you are a fan of Kristen Hannah’s The Nightingale, you would likely enjoy our November selection:  The Room on Rue Amélie by Kristin Harmel.  Club members will be reviewing this book on Tuesday, November 26th; you’re welcome to join us.

Traditionally the Book Club takes a break in December from our usual reading schedule, due to the busy holiday season, but we will be back at it for the New Year.  We have a light-hearted title for January:  Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman.

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 excellent reading choices and stimulating discussion, contact Sue Jergens ( or Jan Grewar (
