Book Club Invite

626.judy's book clubI had my first Book Club invitation and happily joined this wonderful group to discuss my book A Place of Her Own: The Legacy of Oregon Pioneer Martha Poindexter Maupin. This Book Club for Chapter CU of the P.E.O. Sisterhood met at the lovely Roseburg home of Shug and Julie Wathen, where the group meets regularly. Julie is behind the counter, second from the right, and Shug kindly took the picture for us. My friend Judy Emmett (behind the counter on the right) arranged for me to visit the club for this meeting. My thanks to Judy. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Because Book Club meetings are private, I don’t advertise them on my events calendar, and won’t generally write followups. But everyone in this group agreed that they would be happy to have me report on our gathering today and post the picture.

We had a lively discussion. Lots of good questions. I felt quite gratified by the depth of their appreciation of the book and its nuances.

I look forward to meeting with other book clubs.
