Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a picture of your book group and description of what makes your reading group unique.
If your book club is chosen, we will send you and your group a box of books to share!
Our Book Club met for the first time on September 21, 1989. Originally, after we really became organized, the group decided to call ourselves "The Happy Bookers" as a play off of the popular book of the day Happy Hooker. Later some ladies objected to that although we had a lot of laughs from everyone who heard us tell them our Book Club name. So we are now just Bookers. We have a bit more uniqueness than being a very long-lived Book Club. We are all members of the Lake Gaston Ladies Club. In fact, Bookers is just one of currently 23 Activity Groups of the LGLC. All of us live around Lake Gaston. There are 5 counties in 2 states (Virginia & North Carolina) encompassing Lake Gaston. The LGLC now has 449 members. Bookers has spawned one of the other Activity Groups, Stage One. That Activity Group writes and performs a play once a year. Bookers size has waxed and waned over the years (our group was as large as 70 members one year), but we have stayed together through our love of reading and discussing and sharing books. We've met in homes, church fellowship halls, and now one of the local fire department's bingo halls.
Our mission statement is: "The purpose of the Happy Bookers is to share a mutual love of books and reading, as well as other aspects of cultural arts and education."
