As you can plainly see, delicious and elegant luncheons are an important feature at our Book Club gatherings.

All were treated to a delicious lunch featuring “Walk on the Wild Side” salad and Chocolate Pot de Creme dessert. Following lunch Sharon Mendlick led a spirited discussion of the Pulitzer Prize winning All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr.
Plans for the coming year were discussed and the new book list will be forthcoming. We have a great group and invite you to join us this fall.
