December Book Club Meeting

  • December 16, 2013 · 6:30 PM

Decembers book is Hattie Big Sky.


For years, sixteen-year-old Hattie's been shuttled between relatives. Tired of being Hattie Here-and-There, she courageously leaves Iowa to prove up on her late uncle's homestead claim near Vida, Montana. With a stubborn stick-to-itiveness, Hattie faces frost, drought and blizzards. Despite many hardships, Hattie forges ahead, sharing her adventures with her friends--especially Charlie, fighting in France--through letters and articles for her hometown paper. 

Her backbreaking quest for a home is lightened by her neighbors, the Muellers. But she feels threatened by pressure to be a "Loyal" American, forbidding friendships with folks of German descent. Despite everything, Hattie's determined to stay until a tragedy causes her to discover the true meaning of home.

    The books we chose for the upcoming month were all booked out a month or two. So everyone should be thinking of an older book we can read that would be free to download or easily purchased at the Book Exchange.

    My address is 3215 Hollis St. It's over by Splash MT. Hollis is off of Pattee Cr Dr which runs between Higgins and Bancroft. I hope to make Perilee's Wartime Spice Cake for our potluck.

    It turns out that I have a conflict for this date, so I will possibly be late - 6:45 or so. Hopefully, I can still come! I loved the book!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
