The Babes with Books (BWB, the Heritage Women’s Book club) meeting nearly always occurs on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, but the date appears slightly confusing/disconcerting when it appears on the 15th, especially two months in a row. These dates somehow seem too early. Be that as it may, the BWB will gather again this month on the 15th to discuss The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd. Amazon.com describes this novel set in the pre-Civil War south as an “exquisitely written novel . . . a triumph of storytelling that looks with unswerving eyes at a devastating wound in American history, through women whose struggles for liberation, empowerment, and expression will leave no reader unmoved.”
Further reading selections and meeting dates currently include the following:
- The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman – April 19
- Fifteen Dogs by André Alexis – May 17
- How We Got to Now by Steven Johnson – June 21.
All these meetings are from 7 – 9 p.m. in the Heritage Room. All women members and friends are invited, whether or not they have read the book. For more information, see Barb Barnes or email her at BWB@huuc.net.
