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 required (not even a bachelor’s!), and no grades given. Just read the assigned book and show up for a lively, lighthearted discussion. We usually meet monthly on the third Monday evening from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00-ish, rotating among members’ homes.

Here is the September book, which is an Oprah’s Book Club selection and a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice and is on former President Barack Obama’s summer reading list. Called by The Washington Post "a miraculous debut” and CBS This Morning “a towering achievement of imagination,” The Sweetness of Water depicts the unlikely bond between two freedmen who are brothers and a Georgia farmer and his wife, an alliance that will alter their lives forever.

Book: The Sweetness of Water

Author: Nathan Harris

Date: Monday, September 20, 5:00 p.m.
