Lost Lake Books & Bites

Join the Uppity Book Women to discuss "Lost Lake" by Sarah Addison Allen. Goodreads has this to say about this new novel by the author of "Garden Spells,": "Suley, Georgia, is home to Lost Lake Cottages and not much else. Which is why it's the perfect place for newly-widowed Kate and her eccentric eight-year-old daughter Devin to heal. Kate spent one memorable childhood summer at Lost Lake, had her first almost-kiss at Lost Lake, and met a boy named Wes at Lost Lake. It was a place for dreaming. But Kate doesn't believe in dreams anymore, and her Aunt Eby, Lost Lake's owner, wants to sell the place and move on. Lost Lake's magic is gone. As Kate discovers that time has a way of standing still at Lost Lake can she bring the cottages—and her heart—back to life? Because sometimes the things you love have a funny way of turning up again. And sometimes you never even know they were lost . . . until they are found." The wonderful folks at Crates Coffee House have given us permission to bring food in, so please bring something to share that is in keeping with the book, either mentioned in it or something you think the characters would eat. The coffee & tea (Crimson Cup, a small, local operation out of Columbus, Ohio, supplies it) at Crates are wonderful and they have yummy pastries from Great Harvest, too. I will supply plates/bowls & table service. Remember, if you're looking for serious book discussion, this is probably not going to be your cup of tea. We'll have lots of fun & definitely talk about the book, but if we stray, that's fine, too. Open minds, too, are a must!

    What fun we had! There were 4 of us & we had a great discussion & yummy food. I had a ball creating strawberry mice inspired by Lisette's fruit salad for it.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
