November and December 2020

Because COVID-19 cases seem to be escalating.

Because we subscribed to ZOOM and have used it successfully at our board meetings.

Because all factors indicate that being indoors is worse than outdoors.

Because we have to pay for spaces we gather other than our clubhouse.

Because our clubhouse is too small for prescribed social distancing.

We will be having both our board meeting AND our  regular meeting in November and December, via ZOOM.

Book Club

Angie Mayo, Chairman


Last discussion: On September 16, 14 members of the Book Club met via Zoom to discuss Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz. A murder mystery novel à la Agatha Christie, however, the dual-style, with parallel crime stories together in one book, didn’t get as many great reviews from the group as anticipated.


Other news: Katherine Regan, who has been our Book Club Secretary for the last 3 years, is resigning and moving to the Chairperson position of the IWC’s Education Committee. Erika Hawn, a Book Club member from the community, has volunteered to serve as our new secretary. Thank you both, to Katherine, for your dedicated service, and Erika, for stepping in.


October book: The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson promises to open a whole new world to our readers. We’ll meet Cussy Mary Carter, who’s not only a traveling librarian working for the Kentucky Pack Horse library service in the 1930s, but she’s also the last of her kind, a blue-skinned native of the Appalachians.


This book has been in the bestseller list of both The New York Times and USA Today. Therefore, too

Also, during this meeting five out of the nine books, which were voted on for the new Reading List by email, prior to the meeting, were assigned a month and a facilitator.
