We have serious discussions about books; we dissect the plot, the characters, the motives and perspectives of the authors – and we also share some laughter.
This is a Great Book Club!
It was interesting how this book brought to the fore so many memories of life in the Sixties,
thoughts about race and diversity, and how each of us ‘lived life’ during that time.
Some of us (not yours truly!) were too young to remember much of what was happening in the 1960s,
but all had read or heard of situations such as Stockett wrote about in The Help.
It was a good evening.
