July Book Group Meeting

At the last group we decided we would read Summer Sisters, by Judy Blume. It's NOT a kid book.
In the summer of 1977, Victoria Leonard’s world changes forever when Caitlin Somers chooses her as a friend. Dazzling, reckless Caitlin welcomes Vix into the heart of her sprawling, eccentric family, opening doors to a world of unimaginable privilege, sweeping her away to vacations on Martha’s Vineyard, an enchanting place where the two friends become “summer sisters.”

Now, years later, Vix is working in New York City. Caitlin is getting married on the Vineyard. And the early magic of their long, complicated friendship has faded. But Caitlin begs Vix to come to her wedding, to be her maid of honor. And Vix knows that she will go—because Vix wants to understand what happened during that last shattering summer. And, after all these years, she needs to know why her best friend—her summer sister—still has the power to break her heart.

    It was good to see everyone as usual and to meet Barbara for the first time. We are tentatively planning the next meetup on Sat. August 17th and will read Little Men by Louise May Alcott. Hopefully one of the organizers can post,

    I'm downgrading my RSVP status to "maybe". I'll be at a concert in Philly the previous night and might not be getting home until 3 a.m. so I may still be in bed by noon, especially b/c I'm going to another concert Saturday night. Why do I let my husband talk me into these things? I'M TOO OLD FOR THIS!
