Back to reading for the Babes with Books, Heritage’s women’s book club, since more parties aren’t scheduled till the warmer months. Still, the Babes are starting with some highly recommended reads. At the January 16 meeting (7-9 p.m. in the Heritage room) the group will discuss Americanah, by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. On February 20 we will discuss A Confederacy of Dunces, by John Kennedy Toole.
The January selection could not come with higher recommendations. As extracted from Amazon.com: “From one of the world’s great contemporary writers comes the story of two Nigerians making their way in the U.S. and the UK, raising universal questions of race and belonging, the overseas experience for the African diaspora, and the search for identity and a home.” —Barack Obama. Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s ”The Great American Read.”
Keep an eye out for changes in the reads schedule since things have been rather fluid recently. Bring your ideas for future reads to the January gathering. We must plan our spring reads then to enable Anderson library procurement. Please assure that your suggested read has at least 12-15 copies available so we can avoid last minute changes! All women and female friends of Heritage are always welcome, whether or not you’ve read or liked the selected read.
If you have any questions, talk with Barb Barnes or email her at BWB@huuc.net.
