Holiday Greetings to all,
It was a delight seeing so many of you at Dalts on November 3. There was a wonderful mix of old and new friends, the conversations were lively, and the food was good. Kudos to our server at Dalts for her organization and timeliness which made closing out our tabs easy.
The highlight of the evening was hearing Ariel Lawhon discuss her creative process in writing historical fiction. It was fascinating and I’ve added Ariel to my reading list and you can find a list of Ariel’s books on this page.
The leaves have fallen from the trees and only a few remain with brilliant colors of yellow and red. We have a sweet gum and ginkgo tree in our neighborhood and the leaves are still bright red (sweet gum) and shimmering yellow (ginkgo). The fallen ones make a crackling noise as Lizzie, my Golden Retriever, and I adventure through the yards. Lizzie considers it adventuring.
For me, November ushers in a season of joy and thankfulness. The cold weather is perfect for a cozy time in front of the fireplace reading and sipping coffee. It is a time for me to express my thanks to family with a Thanksgiving dinner and probably too many desserts. It is fun for everyone.
Don’t forget the holiday dinner is scheduled for December 8 at the Woman’s Club on Hillsboro Road. Please RSVP on the website. We look forward to seeing you.
Wishing all a joyful Thanksgiving.
All the best,
January 21, 2023
The internationally bestselling author of The Jane Austen Society returns with a compelling and heartwarming story of post-war London, a century-old bookstore, and three women determined to find their way in a fast-changing world. Bloomsbury Books is an old-fashioned new and rare book store that has persisted and resisted change for a hundred years, run by men and guided by the general manager's unbreakable fifty-one rules.
All book discussions are currently being held on Zoom.

Have you heard about our Literary Society? We still have our book discussion every third Saturday at 10:00 a.m. in January, March, May, July, September, and November. But now we also have a literary society on the third Thursday night at 7:00 p.m in February, April, June, August, October, and December. At these gatherings, we all share what we've been reading and get great ideas for new books to read. Be watching out for emails containing the Zoom links for these events.
"I look forward to hearing everyone talk enthusiastically about the books they're reading, and what they most enjoyed. It's always a nice variety. My "books to read" list has grown every time we chat over Zoom." -- Tori Ross
