Considering our unusual spate of hot weather, you might think that the Babes With Books (BWB or Heritage’s women’s book club) would already be donning their “swim burkas.” But no! One more meeting on June 20th in the Heritage Room before our seasonal merrymaking. The June meeting will discuss Young Jane Young, by Gabriel Zevin. According to Kirkus Reviews, “This book will not only thoroughly entertain everyone who reads it; it is the most immaculate takedown of slut-shaming in literature or anywhere else.”
BWB’s remaining 2018 events calendar is as follows:
- July 18 – Allie and Bea, by Catherine Ryan Hyde (pool party at Donna Buckley’s house).
- Aug 15 – The Totally Unscientific Study of the Search for Human Happiness, by Paula Poundstone (pool party at Tracy Rossa’s house).
- Sept 19 – The Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing, by Mira Jacob.
- Oct 17 – Perfection, by Kathleen Wade (yes, Heritage’s own Kathy Wade).
- Nov 21 – Carrying Albert Home, by Homer Hickam (possible date change – keep tuned).
- Dec 19 – Movie (TBD) & Party.
All meetings are from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Heritage room unless otherwise noted. All Heritage women and female friends are always invited.
If you have questions, please ask Barb Barnes (BWB@huuc.net).
