Happy summer, everyone! Please join us in person or online for Norfield's next Open Door Book Club

Our monthly meetings resume on Wednesday, September 8th at 7.30 pm

Our book group really enjoyed our last get-together (live!), with thanks to Ginny Awn for her hospitality. We shared our reading of While Justice Sleeps, by Stacey Abrams. Most of all, we enjoyed the fellowship – including Rainy and Laura, who joined us via Zoom.

As we wrap up another year, I would like to share a little bit about our book group. I'm not sure, but I think we first met in 2009. It has always been a good experience and continues to be something to look forward to each month. If you have ever considered attending our book group but have been unable to do so, I am reaching out to you! Please check us out and bring a friend. We would love to see you in September! It's a great excuse to read, and a wonderful opportunity for a night out with others.

For our summer-break's reading, we selected: Great Circle, by Maggie Shipstead. Click here to read an interesting review in The Washington Post.

Also, here's an interesting look at the story-behind-the-story of Maggie Shipstead's book, posted on Outside Online.

Everyone have a great summertime! For more information, please email me at cmars.blount@gmail.com. As always, our group is open to newcomers and hope to see you soon!

Happy reading!
