Book Club

By Barbara Khan, Coordinator

Want to join some of your neighbors and talk about a good book? Lakeport has an informal book club that is always open to new members. No master’s degree in literature is required (not even a bachelor’s!), and no grades are given. Just read the selected book and then participate in a lively, lighthearted discussion. We meet monthly on the third Monday evening from 7:00 p.m. to 8-ish. We normally rotate among members’ homes, but during Covid-19, book club discussions are being held via Zoom, with the conference link sent in the reminder email before the meeting. Call Barbara Khan at 703-390-0506 or e-mail her at for further information. 

Here is the November selection:

Book: The Secrets of Mary Bowser, by Lois Leveen 

Monday, November 16, 7:00 p.m.

Mary Bowser was a real person born into slavery in Richmond, Virginia. Freed by the daughter of the family that owned her, Bowser was sent North to be educated—but she returned to the South and became a Union spy by posing as a slave in the Confederate White House.
