Recently, I met with my book club at The Armed Forces Retirement Home, Washington, D.C. Glenna's Book Club came together on a Wednesday afternoon much the same as we have been coming together for nearly three years now.
Our discussions lingered well into the afternoon that day, as we enjoyed some delicious treats, and as we revisited the many books that we have read together over the past several years. We also looked to days ahead and chatted about some of our summer plans-family reunions, weddings to attend, and leisure outdoor activities with friends and family alike.
Our discussions led us to our summer reading assignments, to include: "Lost In Shangri-La" A true story of survival, adventure, and the most incredible rescue mission of WWII, written by Mitchell Zuckoff, "Unbroken" A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption, written by Laura Hillenbrand, "Gandhi & Churchill" The Epic Rivalry That Destroyed an Empire and Forged Our Age, written by Arthur Herman, and "Churchill" A Study In Greatness, written by Geoffrey Best. When our book club reconvenes in August, we will have much to talk about, as we will enjoy sharing our thoughts about the intriguing literary selections that we have chosen to read throughout the summer.
I have included some photos of my book club friends-they are indeed "America's Finest!"
