April Book Club Update March 13, 2014

Filed under: Housekeeping — lakelandreads @ 2:32 am

Hello ladies,

Last week we had a very good discussion on the book “I am Malala”. We had a very fun evening.

In April we will meet on the second Thursday which is April 10 and we will discuss at Joni in Hauser the book The Seamstress by Frances De Pontes Peebles. According to Joni though the book has a lot of pages it is an easy read.

If you know anyone interested in getting the book club email and is not getting it, please forward this one and let everyone know who we should ad on the email list.

Have a good read.

Monique Stevens

Book Club Update February 7, 2014

Filed under: Housekeeping — lakelandreads @ 11:25 am

Hello ladies.

We had an intimate and enjoyable gathering at our book discussion of The Winter Sea. The book was enjoyed by all who read it. Donna hosted and treated us with delicious goodies. Monique chose this month’s book. It is I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai. With those in attendance at the discussion, we also chose the March book read as well. It is a bit long so thought we would also share the book for those who would appreciate a head start. It is The Seamstress by Frances De Pontes Peebles. Joni highly recommended this book. She said that even though it is a bit long it is an easy read. Personally I am excited about both reads and am looking forward to getting into some engaging reads. Hope that all of you are as well. Please take a look at who I have sent this out to and if I have missed someone please email them as these are all the addresses I had. Hope to see you all at Monique’s in March.
