This evening book club meets on the 1st Thursday evening of every month at 6:30 PM.
This evening’s book is a tender and satisfying novel set in a time and a place lost forever. Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet gives us a glimpse of the damage that is caused by war–not the sweeping damage of the battlefield, but the cold, cruel damage to the hearts and humanity of individual people. Especially relevant in today’s world, this is a beautifully written book that will make you think. And, more importantly, it will make you feel.
The Beekeeper’s Apprentice by Laurie King is the selection we will be discussing on April 21st. Among the thousands of Sherlock Holmes novels, sequels, and prequels published in the century or so since Sherlock Holmes first graced the literary stage, only a few stand out. One such adaptation is Laurie R. King’s The Beekeeper’s Apprentice. Originally published in 1994, the story has endured over the past two decades. That popularity culminated in a recently released 20th anniversary edition. This is the first in a series of novels starring Mary Russell, a young woman who comes of age at the turn of the 20th century and becomes Holmes’ student, apprentice, and partner. The tale is a number of things: a sort of bildungsroman that details Mary Russell’s coming of age and coming into her own as a detective, a mystery story, a historical novel, and, above all, the tale of a blossoming relationship and partnership between two similarly peculiar minds.
Lunch will be served at 12:30; the cost is $17.00
The presentation will be “Daylilies, The High Performance Perennial”. Our speaker will be Carol Haj and will be an inclusive presentation which will give us basics knowledge of these Cultivars, but also build upon that for any of us who may want to learn more or even delve into hybridizing. Carol met us at the Garden Walk last year and offered to give a presentation for us. She has also offered to give us a donation of Day Lilies for our own garden! Even if you don’t have a garden to play in, this will be a fun and beautiful program
Lunch will be served at 12:30; the cost is $17.00 A return speaker on Social Activism topics, Claudia Chiesi, will be returning with another riveting program. Locally, and in some other parts of this country, and Canada, there are efforts/activity to address the fundamental injustice that has subjugated native people. Western hemisphere native/indigenous people have been deprived of their land and their human rights since the 1400s— based primarily on doctrines emanating from popes and royal families of Europe. The writings from the period, known as papal bulls, are stunning since they purport to be the voice of God telling the royals to claim lands and resources and to either convert or vanquish native people. Further, the US Constitution uses this same reasoning and writing in the current law to support and extend the travesty.
