Nat King Cole once crooned, “The party’s over, it’s time to call it a day.” Well, the Babes with Books (the BWB – Heritage’s women’s book club) may have finished their traditional holiday party in a non-traditional, “Zooming” way but they won’t call it a day when it comes to reading a good book.
The January 20 BWB Zoom meeting (7 to 9 p.m.) will discuss the NY Times bestseller and Pulitzer Prize-winning novel All the Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr. According to a M.L. Stedman review, this compelling and uplifting WWII story is a “tender exploration of this world’s paradoxes, the beauty of the laws of nature and the terrible ends to which war subverts them, the resilience of the human heart, the immutability of a moment, and the healing power of time.”
The February 17 BWB meeting selection is Just Mercy, by Bryan Stevenson. March 17 we discuss Ellen Foster, by Kaye Gibbons. All three books are available a month before their meeting date at the Anderson public library in the Heritage book club hold shelf.
Those women who participate in the Babes with Books Google group will receive an emailed Zoom session invitation six to eight days prior to each Zoom meeting. If you would like to join the Google group, contact Denise in the office to sign you up. If you desire a one-time only Zoom invitation, contact Barb at least two days prior to the meeting. All women members and friends are always welcome at any BWB gathering. Send email to Barb at:
