Northwood News ♦ December 2012

North Four Corners Book Group

By Carolyn VanDyck

Inspired by neighbors Esther Starobin and Carolyn Ross’s column, “Neighborly Notes,” in the April 2012 issue of the Northwood News (see story), an organizational meeting was held in May to invite all interested to participate in a monthly book discussion series.  Twelve of our neighbors attended and suggested a list of books to read and the meeting schedule:  the third Thursday of the month, at 7:30 p.m., at a volunteer host’s home.

From left, Joanna Connors, Sandra Figler, Iris Peabody, Judy Vann, and Bev Hollrah are just a few of our neighbors attending the monthly meetings of the NFC Book Club.
It was a great beginning, and meetings have been held every month except August since.  Books discussed have been The Buddha in the Attic, Wolf Hall, Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand, Winter Rose, and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.  The next meeting will be 17 January; the book to be reviewed will be Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet.  Additional members are welcome.  For additional information, contact Esther Starobin at estarobin AT gmail DOT com.   ■
