November Book Club Meeting

We just had our second book club meeting for our newly formed DC book club. It was a really fun meeting. We read the book "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society." It's an epistolary novel (all made up of letters) about the Channel Islands during and after World War II. Generally people enjoyed the book. It was an easy read and had some really interesting themes, but didn't go into much depth. The characters were fun, but also a bit one-dimensional. To fit the theme, Stephanie, who hosted the meeting, made a baked-potato bar for dinner. Overall a very fun night.

For the next book club meeting, we're reading "Under the Banner of Heaven: The Story of Violent Faith" by Jon Krakauer. It's more serious than our last couple books - its a non-fiction book about an extreme sect of the Morman church. Should be interesting...
