Our book for the month of September is "Annie Freeman's Fabulous Traveling Funeral" by Kris Radish. Our meeting for discussion/luncheon is scheduled for Saturday, October 3, 2009 giving us five weeks to enjoy this book. PLEASE if you RSVP "Yes" to attend - please do. Here is a description of the book.

From Booklist
Annie passes away at the youthful age of 56, leaving her high-school friend, Katherine, responsible for organizing her traveling funeral. Katherine receives a UPS package with Annie's favorite pair of red high-top sneakers, which contain her ashes, and instructions to contact four other women who played pivotal roles in her life. All of the women either have met or heard of each other through Annie, and all agree to fulfill her request that they fly across the country together and disperse her ashes at places meaningful to Annie. The women encounter beauty in unlikely places and people who either knew Annie or were somehow touched by her, causing the women to miss Annie all the more and reevaluate themselves and their missed opportunities. The funeral party turns into a true celebration of the deceased and her wonderful life. Once again, Radish celebrates women's inimitable friendships in an ode to sisterhood that will make her many fans rejoice. Patty Engelmann

    This was my first book club meeting and I really enjoyed it and meeting all of you. Toni did a great job in prepping and allowing open discussion about the book. I found it very interesting to get others input and opened my mind fuller to other prospectives. I will definately keep attending and look forward to more great reads and discussions. Tracie
