Old Sames Book Club
How did you get together? Our group has been officially together for two years. However, we have all been friends for many years. We have grown closer through our love of books and truly feel connected like sisters, or like "old sames." We officially have 13 members, with some members moving as far away as Las Vegas and North Carolina. No matter how far apart we are, our club still manages to stay in contact with our sisters, and they attend meetings when possible.
How does your book club work? Each member picks a month to host the book club, and that member also selects the book for that month. The hostess normally has a sit-down dinner (with lots of wine!)
What are your all-time favorite selections? The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory, The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls, Ghosts Among Us by James Van Praagh. Our current book for April is The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. We also plan to view the movie at that meeting.
Are you planning any special trips or events? Our club is planning a trip to Gettysburg. We have had many lively discussions concerning ghosts and the beyond and have decided we want to take the Ghost Tour of haunted Gettysburg.
