Cari hosted our February book club in her home. It was a great night and another "packed" house. Cari served beef...which was a very prominent food in the book (Half-Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls). That wasn't all, there was also delicious cheesy potatoes, fresh fruit with dipping chocolate and sugar cookies in the shape of cacti and boots.
Conversation often went back to Jeannette's first novel, The Glass Castle (one of our book club favorites). We also got to hear about the author's recent visit to California from Kristen and Chari, who were able to go hear her speak.
The consensus on this book was positive.
March's book is The Help by Kathryn Stockett and will be hosted by Kristen on the 31st at 7 pm.
April's book will be The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver and will be hosted by Mandy.
