Re: Book Club Meeting at Kailua-Kona Library
Day of Event: Tuesday, September 20, 2011
11:00 AM to 1:00 PM
This month’s selection is The Help by Kathryn Stockett. Depicting the fascinating and complex relationships between vastly different members of a household, these stories of black maids working for white women in the state of Mississippi in the 1960s have an insiders' view of child-rearing, Junior League benefits, town gossip, and race relations. The Help has been a very successful best seller and the movie which came out several weeks ago made Number One at the box office.
The Book Club will be preparing our list of next year’s selections, so plan to bring your suggestions to the September meeting. We will need to discuss the choices and make a final list. The October selection is The Idea Man, a novel by our Senator Josh Green, who will be with us to discuss his book.
Join us for a lively meeting and light refreshments. New members are welcome.
