Dana’s Book Club Update

January is all about author Karen White.  I know, I know, it’s only December 1st and we’re already talking about January.  Well, that’s because we’re giving our members (and followers) a month off to enjoy the holidays, but then we’re back strong in January with Karen White’s latest book – THE STRANGERS ON MONTAGUE STREET.  The book is the third in the Tradd Street series and Atlanta members will get the chance to meet Karen live at our meeting.  Get all the details and RSVP on Meetup.com.

In other news… we’ll be doing two non-traditional book club get togethers in the next month or so;  a post holiday drink and book swap, and a movie outing to see THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO.  If you’re not in Atlanta think about doing something similar with your own book club!

Happy Holidays to All and Happy Reading!

    Dana: Years ago, my neighborhood book club, Readers in the Hood, gave up trying to discuss a book in December (We loved Capote’s A CHRISTMAS MEMORY; Grisham’s SKIPPING CHRISTMAS, not so much…) and just settled for what we call our HOLIDAZE party. As the name implies, our last meeting of the year has a lot more to do with wine than with reading…But we also believe it’s the time of year to give back. So in November, we collect items for our local food bank, and in December, we play Santa to a local preschool for underprivileged kids. (I’m off later to pick up a Power Ranger and a Spider Man—which I haven’t had a chance to do in about 15 years…) We find giving back is a fun activity to get our ‘girl groupiness’ on!

    BTW, LOVE Karen White—I may just have to read along with the Atlanta book club from California next month! Have a wonderful holiday!

    Cheers! BCC
