The Pangman Book Club was started in November of 2008 by a few ladies who love to read. We had our first meeting in November were we selected our first book club selection, Kitchen God’s Wife by Amy Tan. Currently we have eight members and we meet at the Library the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. After we discuss the book we have read, we have coffee, tea and goodies.
Our last meeting was on October 14th were we discussed our September book club selection, A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest J. Gaines. We had a lively discussion about this book and almost everyone agreed that this was a very moving and sad story.
If you have not read this book it is about Jefferson, a young black man who is convicted of murder and sentenced to death. His grandmother asks the school teacher, Grant to visit Jefferson at the prison to help him to become a man prior to his death. Grant struggles with this request, but he goes to the prison to visit Jefferson and over time he gets through to Jefferson.
Our next meeting will be at the Library on Wednesday, November 11th at 7:00 p.m.
Upcoming books we will be reading:
- October – 1st to Die by James Patterson
- November – Where the Heart Is by Billie Letts
- December – This Year Will be Different by Maeve Binchy
