Set in the aftermath of the Civil War, the Babes with Books (BWB or Heritage’s women’s book club) selection for their September 15, 7 to 9 p.m. meeting in the sanctuary is News of the World, by Paulette Jiles. Amazon.com describes the novel as an “exquisitely rendered, morally complex, multilayered novel of historical fiction that explores the boundaries of family, responsibility, honor, and trust.” If September proves to be too busy a month for pleasure reading, the BWB turns a blind eye to “cheating” by watching the Tom Hank’s movie based on the novel.
Our future reads and meeting dates currently consist of:
- October 20 – The Dressmaker of Khair Khana, by Gale Lemmon
- November 17 – The Guest List, by Lucy Foley
- December 15 – Squeeze Me, by Carl Hiaasen (Holiday party currently on hold in light of uncertain pandemic considerations.)
- January 19 – Circe, by Madeline Miller
All women, members or friends, are always invited to any BWB meeting – whether they have read the book or not. Unless otherwise announced, the meeting’s selection is available on hold for the Heritage Book Club at the Anderson Township library approximately a month in advance.
