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 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-ish, either rotating among members’ homes or, in comfortable weather, taking advantage of our beautiful Lakeport setting to meet outside in Triangle Park.
Here are the upcoming selections for February and March:


Book:   Us: A Novel, by David Nicholls
Date:    Monday, February 20
Time:    5:00 p.m.
Where: Jeannette’s house, 1973 Lakeport Way


Book:   Band of Sisters, by Lauren Willig
Date:    Monday, March 20
Time:    5:00 p.m.
Where: Linda’s house, 1915 Lakeport Way
Note: This book is especially appropriate for Lakeport’s Book Club   given the following communication from Linda Rosenberg, who is hosting the March meeting: “My cousin has been sitting on my great aunt’s letters in his attic, and he just sent them to me. She was Ruth Joslin, listed among the original Band of Sisters in the front of the book. I am in the process of reading the handwritten letters and typing them up for easier reading. Willig says all the things that happen in the book are true, but when I first read it I didn’t know what Ruth did. Now I know she was one of the drivers. I will be so happy to share what I learn.”
