The Belle Isle Book Club meets for snacks and laughter the third Monday of every month at 5:30 p.m. in the Belle Isle Yacht Club. You've seen it on the calendar and here is your invitation to take action and join in (or just observe the discussion) of the featured book and author, have a snack provided by the host or hostess, and enjoy the fellowship. We have been on vacation for the summer, but in just six weeks we will begin our fall schedule. Buy or borrow the book, enjoy the read, and plan to meet some new friends. Contact Kathy Rodriguez if you have any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org / 843-546-9640).
September 17th: Eleanor Olyphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman, hosted by Jen Batton.
October 15th: The Thief by Clive Cussler, hosted by Nancy Corrigall.
November 19th: Death in the Air by Kate Winkler Dawson, hosted by Marie Houpt.
December 17th: Barracoon: The Story of the Last Black Cargo by Zora Neale Hurston, hosted by Kathy Rodriguez.
January 21st: The Constant Wife by W. Somerset Maugham, a play to be read by members and guests in tribute to Mary McAlister. *
* For this January event only, everyone bring a snack or beverage. Husbands, boyfriends, and clandestine lovers are all invited, and we hope you will participate in reading the four small parts in the play meant for the male voice.
And, don't forget the Belle Isle "Book Borrow Box" in the Yacht Club, downstairs. Leave a book (not required) and take one home. We have grown beyond our first cabinet into a second. In addition to popular fiction and non-fiction, there are travel books, coffee table books, paperbacks and hardbacks of the classics.
