Even if COVID-19 is keeping most of us at isolated at home, we can still read a good book! Here's what the Better Read Than Dead Book Club is reading.

We are currently reading Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson. It was to be discussed on Saturday, April 11th, but that is unlikely due to COVID-19 health restrictions. So why not call, text, or e-mail a friend who has read the book and share what moved you.

Starting on April 12th, we will be reading Falling Leaves by Adeline Yen Mah.
“Born in 1937 in a port city a thousand miles north of Shanghai, Adeline Yen Mah was the youngest child of an affluent Chinese family who enjoyed rare privileges during a time of political and cultural upheaval. But wealth and position could not shield Adeline from a childhood of appalling emotional abuse at the hands of a cruel and manipulative stepmother. Determined to survive through her enduring faith in family unity, Adeline struggled for independence as she moved from Hong Kong to England and eventually to the United States to become a physician and writer.”
Depending on the affects of the virus on our ability to gather, we tentatively plan to discuss this book on May 9th, 9 - 10:30 a.m. in the Fireside Room.

“Save the Date”!
If the status of the Corona virus (COVID-19) allows, Wednesday April 29th “Better Read Than Dead” Book Club is planning to attend a “Dinner and a Book Signing” event for those interested. This is for the book we will be reading starting on May 10th to be discussed on Saturday, June 13th. Love in Oaxaca by author, Jessica Winters Mireles.
“Once a promising young concert pianist, Camille Childs retreated to her mother’s Santa Barbara estate after an injury to her hand destroyed her hopes for a musical career. She now leads a solitary life teaching piano, and she has a star student: Graciela, the daughter of her mother’s Mexican housekeeper. Two weeks left before the concert, Graciela has disappeared―gone back to her family’s village in the mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico. Desperate to bring Graciela back in time for the concert, Camille goes after her, but on the way there, a bus accident leaves her without any of her possessions…..”
If conditions allow, we will meet for dinner at Harry’s, Wednesday April 29th at 6 p.m., for those who would like to join us and walk down to Chaucer’s afterwards for the book signing. Please let me know if you are planning to join us for dinner. The book is available to purchase April 21st.
