The Book Thief...UCC Ladies' Book Club Selection

We had a wonderful afternoon full of food, fun and fellowship at our last UCC Ladies' Book Club when we discussed the book, Mount Vernon Love Story by Mary Higgins Clark.  You can read more about the party here and get all the recipes here.

As we always do at the end of each gathering, we gave away a copy of the book for the next meeting. This time, I asked for the year the George Washington was born.  A couple of people got it right, so then I asked for the month.  Abbie Wallace was the ultimate winner, but since she won the book at the last meeting, she deferred and the prize went to the runner-up, Nancy Foster. 

Several people (that were unable to attend the meeting) have been asking for the title for the next meeting.  So, drumroll, please...
Our next book club meeting will be sometime in July and will be hosted by Wanda Warmack and Cindy Spangler.  We will be discussing The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.  Cindy has actually taught this book in one of her literature classes at Faulkner, so she will lead the discussion.

This is a bit of a departure from the type of books we normally choose, but I have heard wonderful things about the book and we are all looking forward to reading it.
I will post more details in early June as to the date, time and place for the meeting.
Until then, Happy Reading!

I'm so glad you stopped by my neck of the woods!
