If it's Wednesday, it must be Glenna's Book Club at The Armed Forces Retirement Home, Washington D.C. Recently, some of the members of our weekly Book Club lingered for a while to continue to discuss some of the wonderful books we are reading. Upon completing "Red Notice," authored by Bill Browder, a suspenseful and thrilling book, our Book Club read "The Book Woman's Daughter," a sequel to "The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek," authored by Kim Michele Richardson. We enjoyed yet again, a beautifully written Appalachian narrative of the strong women, their bravery, and their resilience during the early 1950's. Ms. Richardson, a native of Eastern Kentucky herself, has been working on a project raising money for the flood-ravaged libraries that are close to her very own heart. She calls the libraries of her homeland, "community lifelines." The members of Glenna's Book Club are so grateful to be reading such extraordinary books, and learning from such gifted writers.
