UPDATE: THE BOOK SELECTION POLL WINNER IS IN SUNLIGHT & IN SHADOW BY HELPRIN.
I'm really on the ball this year! Usually we avoid a book discussion and just mingle, eat, & drink for our holiday get together. This year, I thought why miss out on an opportunity to read & discuss one of the highly anticipated new releases that many of us have on our reading lists anyway. Realistically we will all be in the holiday spirit, so if you read it, great, if you don't read it, we'll love you anyway.
The poll is up, it is under the "MORE" tab on the main Charleston Book Lovers web-page, just click your choice. I will post the winner as soon as we have enough votes. This meetup will be mostly mingling, getting to know one another, celebrating our friendship, talking amongst ourselves, and there will be no attendance limit (call me CRAZY, it's true either way)!
Just to add a festive giving spark, in lieu of a secret Santa, or other gifting token to each other, I would strongly encourage each of us to donate any amount you are capable of, to our favorite Book-loving charity: BEGIN WITH BOOKS. Here's the link to their giving site: http://palmettoproject.org/begin-with-books/. Please remember that a donation of just $33 will provide a brand new book to a low-country pre-school aged child, each month, for one full year. This is a fantastic charity that is close to our hearts and benefits children right here in our very needy locale. No gift is too small and Thank You in advance for your generosity.
Happy Holidays (in advance)!
