Women’s Book Club

Hi All,

Just a reminder about the book group meeting Sunday, March 8 at 3:00 pm. The author, Bett Norris, is so excited about talking with us that she mentioned the meeting on her web site, bettnorris.com. After visiting her site, I can tell this will be a really fun meeting. Also, don’t forget this is the weekend we roll our clocks forward to Daylight Savings Time! So don’t be late and join in the fun! As usual, everyone’s invited whether you’ve read the book or not.

Outloud Books:March Women’s Book Club

Hi Everyone,

Have you ever wanted to talk to an author about where they get their story ideas, or why something happened in the book the way it did, or how they got started writing? Well I have great news! We are going to have a phone-in with author Bett Norris during our meeting and you’ll get to ask all those questions and more. She will also be telling us about What’s Best for Jane, the sequel to Miss McGhee.

Here’s a little info on the book, Miss McGhee.

” World War II is over and… Mary McGhee is looking for…a new start, a new job, a new place. But in the small Alabama town she’s chosen, she soon finds it’s not so easy to leave the past behind. There’s the old problem of being an unwelcome woman in a man’s world when Mary takes on the challenge of returning a neglected lumber empire to profitability. Then there’s Lila Dubose, the boss’s wife, who stirs up desires Mary can’t escape, fears she can’t control, and reminders that she is surrounded by threat. Set in the shadow of the civil rights movement, Miss McGhee is a sweeping tale of forbidden love in a turbulent time. First-time author Bett Norris portrays one of the darkest and most troubling times in American history with exceptional skill and sensitivity. (Book Jacket)

So mark your calendars for 3:00 pm on Sunday, March 8 and remember, as always, you don’t need to read the book to come and enjoy the discussion.
