Join us for this month's Books, Brunch, & Babyboomers (BB&B) meet-up. Relax and laugh with some great women while munching on a yummy brunch and discussing our current book. Our books are recommended by our members throughout the year and our reading list is put together at the end of each year based on the list of recommendations.
Crossing to Safety - Wallace Stegner
Wallace Stegner [masked]) may be better known for his 1972 Pulitzer Prize-winner, "Angle of Repose," but it's his last novel, "Crossing to Safety," which quietly celebrated its 25th anniversary this year, that keeps drawing readers back. This is the kind of book – the apt first selection for Will Schwalbe's "The End of Your Life Book Club,"by the way – that reminds you why reading is such a wonderful solace and escape. Story moves between Vermont and Wisconsin as it follows the lives of two couples who form a fast and lifelong friendship during the mid-1930 depression. A powerful insight into the alchemy of friendship and marriage.
Please bring a dish for the book group brunch. If you know what you'll be bringing please post it in the comment box when you RSVP.
