51r93vd9kl-_sx327_bo1204203200_Our next Throwback Brewery book club meeting will be on Sunday, October 16th at 1pm. In addition to discussing the book, we are going to have a little book baby shower for Sarah!
As you guys know, we did voting a bit differently this week. Of course, there was a tie 🙂 But, all is good because we will just read one book this month and the other the next. First up, we will be reading The Book That Matters Most by Ann Hood .
This is what Amazon has to say about this book:
“An enthralling novel about love, loss, secrets, friendship, and the healing power of literature, by the bestselling author of The Knitting Circle.
Ava’s twenty-five-year marriage has fallen apart, and her two grown children are pursuing their own lives outside of the country. Ava joins a book group, not only for her love of reading but also out of sheer desperation for companionship. The group’s goal throughout the year is for each member to present the book that matters most to them. Ava rediscovers a mysterious book from her childhood?one that helped her through the traumas of the untimely deaths of her sister and mother. Alternating with Ava’s story is that of her troubled daughter Maggie, who, living in Paris, descends into a destructive relationship with an older man. Ava’s mission to find that book and its enigmatic author takes her on a quest that unravels the secrets of her past and offers her and Maggie the chance to remake their lives.”
For November (date TBD at our October 16th meeting), we will read The Japanese Lover by Isabel Allende.
– Please note – Anyone is welcome to the book club. We drink a little beer, laugh a few laughs, and talk about the book. And, for many, it is also a chance to catch up with friends old and new. If you want to sign up for our book club email list, please shoot us an email. Cheers!
