The Bookworms Book Club
How did you get together? We are a group of Head Start and Early Head Start parents who meet once a month.
Where do you usually meet? We meet in a conference room at one of our classroom sites. We began in the late '90s when one our parents asked, "Is there a group that gets together to read adult novels?" When the question was asked, my boss said, "Start one!" We began with reading Turtle Moon by Alice Hoffman.
What are your all-time favorite selections? Some favorites over the years are books by Carl Hiaasen, Rise and Shine by Anna Quindlin, Snow Angels by S. O'Nan, The Pilot's Wife by Anita Shreve, Gap Creek by R. Morgan and Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer.
Are you planning any special trips or events? Our annual trip is to go to a large bookstore about 20 miles from where we meet. We make a purchase or two and then go out to lunch to look at our new books that we can't wait to read.
