SUMMERHOUSE SNOWBIRDS BOOK CLUB
Our book club began about six years ago, when two enterprising women realized there were many avid readers sitting poolside. We discuss two books a month from January through March…numbers vary from twelve to twenty-eight.
Since we are in beautiful, historic St. Augustine, we began doing one book each year which tied in with local history…we then visit a historic site and do lunch at a popular restaurant … Collage being a favorite. Our first book was Maria and we we visited the Oldest House and walked the streets where Maria walked. We also did readings on Henry Flagler and toured Flagler College and the Memorial Presbyterian Church. Another year it was Eugenia Price again…Margaret's Story. That year we visited the Ximinez-Fatio house, the Spanish Military Hospital, and had lunch and a tour at the Pena Peck House.
If a particular food is mentioned in a novel, it just might show up at our book discussion…Lane cake was served with To Kill a Mockingbird
, caramel cake with The Help
, and kolache with My Antonia
It is always wonderful to reunite every year…and to welcome new friends as well.
