Book Club


Choosing books can be the
toughest part of having a
book club.

However, before we began
this club I read several
selections that were good,
very good, but not great
first time choices.

I didn't know who our members
would be and how they would
react to some of the content
in one book in particular.

We are about to find out!

For our April Club we have
chosen The Glass Castle by
Jeanette Walls. It is a
powerful story. Mom and
I read it back then, I am
looking forward to re-reading
it.

This is the story of a very
dysfunctional family that learns
how to survive impossible conditions.
Some of the content is harsh.
Their life was harsh.
But there was love.
No question.

To my Quarryville Book Club Readers...
The library has ordered a copy for
you and they will let you know when
it comes in.

If any readers decide to read along
with us, let me know. I want to know
how this book impacts you.
It will have an impact.
What a story...

Have a great day!

I LOVED THE GLASS CASTLE!

I got to meet the author and ask her some questions about the book. She is as real as the book she wrote!

i've never heard of this book, but it does sound very interesting indeed☺

i was drawn to the picture on the cover.. i think i have a print of that very photo! i think it is a detail of a group of girls on a playground... it's a powerful picture. all of us girls know the feeling of seeing other girls whispering, don't we?

pleasant reading, my dear
