Do you LOVE to read?? So do we! We invite you to come and fellowship each month with new friends and a good book. Bookclub is free and a monthly commitment is not required. We just ask that you read the book before you come and you bring it with you. ** We do not meet for Bookclub in July, August or December**
February’s book is Allie & Bea by Catherine Ryan Hyde. Bookclub is Thursday Feb 22nd from 6:30-8:30 at Corner Bakery Fresno
An Amazon Charts bestseller.
Bea has barely been scraping by since her husband died. After falling for a telephone scam, she loses everything and is forced to abandon her trailer. With only two-thirds of a tank in her old van, she heads toward the Pacific Ocean with her cat—on a mission to reclaim what’s rightfully hers, even if it means making others pay for what she lost.
When fifteen-year-old Allie’s parents are jailed for tax fraud, she’s sent to a group home. But when her life is threatened by another resident, she knows she has to get out. She escapes only to find she has nowhere to go—until fate throws Allie in Bea’s path.
Reluctant to trust each other, much less become friends, the two warily make their way up the Pacific Coast. Yet as their hearts open to friendship and love from the strangers they meet on their journey, they find the courage to forge their own unique family—and begin to see an imperfect world with new eyes.
How often does the book club meet?
We meet once a month, usually on the last Thursday.
When and where do they meet?
We meet the last Thursday of the month from 6:30pm-8:30pm. This month’s meeting is at Kuppa Joy Coffee in Clovis. Shari Warkentin is leading this month’s group so look for her once you arrive.
What kind of commitment is required?
There is no set commitment. You may pick and choose the months you would like to participate.
What should I bring when I come?
It is helpful to have read that month’s selection before coming so that you can participate in the discussion. Please bring the book (or e-book) with you. It is a very casual and relaxed atmosphere—all women are welcome!
