Willene Keel provided an excellent review and led an informative discussion at the March meeting of the NPC Book Club. The featured book was “Wild Card Quilt,” by Janisse Ray (published in 2003 by Milkweed Editions, a nonprofit literary publisher in Minneapolis, Minnesota). Several club members used a copy of the book that was provided by a lending program.
The book chronicles the author’s return to her grandmother’s Appling County farm in northern Georgia. It offers stories of the community and longleaf pine ecosystem she left behind 17 years ago, and the changes she found upon her return.
The next NPC Book Club meeting has been scheduled for Monday, April 13, 2020, at 2:00 pm in Fellowship Hall (although it is likely to be postponed because of ongoing public meeting restrictions). The featured book is Every Breath, by Nicholas Sparks. Sue Gailey will serve as the discussion leader.
