Monday Night Book Club

Thank you to everyone for the highly successful Monday Night Book Club. We have chosen the next book.

Drum roll please........

The Knitting Circle by Ann Hood

A review on the book:
After the sudden loss of her only child, Stella, Mary Baxter joins a knitting circle in Providence, Rhode Island, as a way to fill the empty hours and lonely days, not knowing that it will change her life. Alice, Scarlet, Lulu, Beth, Harriet, and Ellen welcome Mary into their circle despite her reluctance to open her heart to them. Each woman teaches Mary a new knitting technique, and, as they do, they reveal to her their own personal stories of loss, love, and hope. Eventually, through the hours they spend knitting and talking together, Mary is finally able to tell her own story of grief, and in so doing reclaims her love for her husband, faces the hard truths about her relationship with her mother, and finds the spark of life again. By an "engrossing storyteller," this new novel once again "works its magic" (Sue Monk Kidd).

We've ordered 2 dozen of these, and once again you'll get a 10% DISCOUNT on your book purchase.
The next Monday Night Book Club Meeting is April 30th 6-8pm. We look forward to having you join us.
