My local book club met last night. We've been together for ten years and always enjoy our monthly meetings. We each brought a wrapped book for a "Chinese book exchange." Each person can choose from the pile or "steal" one of the books already selected, which adds to the fun.
The hostess then picks a story for our January discussion from the exchanged books, and everyone goes home with a new read for the New Year.
To add to the festivities, our hostess, Rita, dubbed the evening "Tacky Christmas Sweater Night" and asked everyone to wear the oldest, silliest, tackiest Christmas sweater they could find. Don't we all look cute in our holiday finery!
Our December book was MY MOTHER'S SECRET, by J. L. Witterick. The poignant Holocaust story was set in Poland, and Rita fixed a delicious Polish dinner complete with stuffed cabbage in honor of the story.
The night ended with a cookie exchange with lots of yummy goodies from which to choose. Some of the cookies were eaten on site and the rest divided and taken home to share with our families. Are you in a book club? Do you have a special celebration for your December meeting? What have been
Wishing you a joyous Christmas!
