Book Club

Book Club will be taking December off but will be returning in January 2020.   We will gather together on Sunday, January 5, 2020 at 3:00 p.m.  at Karen and Jim Roberton’s home in Montgomery Village, Maryland.  Please RSVP to Karen at jkrober25@gmail.com so we know who how many will be attending.

Here is Karen Roberton’s invitation to Book Club

Twelfth Night Book Club Party
A very short Story by Charles Dickens

The Story of the 3 Kings
Learn about Wassailing and taste the mulled drink called Wassail
Smell Frankincense & Myrrh

The book club will be hosted by The Robertons on the day of “Twelfth Night” , the “Epiphany”; or “Wassailing Night”, January 5th 2020.  It will be a little different as instead of reading a book.  We will have a series of readings that cover various subjects.  These include but may not be limited to:

An article from National Geographic “Who were the Three Kings?” 
A reading of one of Charles Dickens’s short stories, this will be a surprise. 
Short historical information about the tradition of “Wassailing”, plus, you will get to taste a sample of Wassail. 
We will have Frankincense & Myrrh, two of the three gifts of the Magi. 

Come gather with us, experience a fun evening; break bread with us.  Book-club is always a fun night of food, wine and friendship.   The food menu will be pot luck based on the traditions of Twelfth Night.

We are always looking for author/book suggestions.  Please either come to a book club meeting or send in your suggestions so that we can include them with the others.  Remember, if your book suggestion is chosen, you’re the next host/hostess!
