San Diego Women's Book Club

Our next book is "Home" byJulie Andrews, a memoir of her early years. Please note our next meeting is scheduled for the last Saturday of May giving us 4 weeks to read the book. Enjoy!

"Andrews, who has written several children's books, both solo and with her daughter, now dances in a different direction with this delightful remembrance of her own childhood and engrossing prelude to her cinematic career. Spanning events from her 1935 birth to the early 1960s, she covers her rise to fame and ends with Walt Disney casting her in Mary Poppins (1963). Setting the stage with a family tree backdrop, she balances the sad struggles of relatives and hard drinkers with mirthful family tales and youthful vocal lessons amid rationing and the London Blitz.
