Book Bites Book Club
South Rowan Public Library, China Grove
Details: Is it your New Year's Resolution to read a new book or meet new people? You
can do both at the Book Bites Book Club at South Rowan Regional Library in
China Grove. The club meets the last Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm.
Members choose all the books, and a new title is read and discussed each
month. And if you like food, this is the book club for you! Members take
turns bringing light refreshments that are tied in with the book¡¯s theme.
For example when reading Mountains Between Us, a story of a plane wreck and
survival in the mountains, the group snacked on trail mix and beef jerky
just like the characters in the book.
Join us beginning Tuesday, January 24 when we discuss Spell of the
Highlander by Karen Marie Moning. New members are always welcome. Upcoming
book selections include:
January 24: Spell of the Highlander by Karen Marie Moning
February 28: Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards
March 27: Moon Women by Pamela Duncan
April 29: Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Caf¨¦ by Fannie Flagg
May 29: Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen
June 26: Life of Pi by Yan Martel
July 3: Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
