Congratulations to Hailey, the winner of our Face of Bookish Women contest! Her super cute picture of herself, her baby, her book, and her food won many of our hearts. She won a Bookish Women tote bag and a copy of Kate Umansky's SOLOMON SNOW AND THE SILVER SPOON (a fabulous middle-grade novel). Katie and Hilary took second and third places in our contest and also won tote bags. All three of these gals will look sooooooooo stylin' when they go to the library, don't you think?
One side of bag (I need to figure out how to flip images!):
Other side of bag:
April did a great job of leading our discussion on Elie Wiesel's NIGHT and Livia Bitton-Jackson's I HAVE LIVED A THOUSAND YEARS, two non-fiction Holocaust accounts. Thanks, April! And thank you, everyone who came. The company, conversation, and autumn drinks were all very good.
In other news, Katie L. is going to lead our discussion of Oscar Wilde's play, "The Importance of Being Earnest." Mark your calendars for November 19th from 8:30 - 9:30 p.m. Note that this is a Thursday! Location will be announced a little closer to the date.
As always, even if you don't get the chance to read our book club books, there is so much that can be learned from out get-togethers. Plus, we have a lot of fun. So please come!
FYI: I've included the notes from our book club discussion of PETER PAN on the post with the September date.
