Chapter One Book Club @ Pearl


Join us for Chapter One Book Club where we will discuss this month's book, Lowcountry Summer by Dorothea Benton Frank. Full of family dysfunction and southern humor, once you're in it, Cecelia says she couldn't put it down.
Here's the book summary:

"When Caroline Wimbley Levine returned to Tall Pines Plantation, she never expected to make peace with long-buried truths about herself and her family. The Queen of Tall Pines, her late mother, was a force of nature, but now she is gone, leaving Caroline and the rest of the family uncertain of who will take her place.
In the lush South Carolina countryside, old hurts, betrayals, and dark secrets will surface, and a new generation will rise along the banks of the mighty Edisto River.
Wonderfully evocative, infused with humor and poignancy, and rich with the lyrical cadences of the South, Lowcountry Summer is vintage Dorothea Benton Frank, a deeply moving novel you'll want to savor and share."

The meeting is from 6-7 p.m. Thursday, June 14 at the Pearl Library. There will be door prizes and refreshments! We hope to see you there!

Simply Crafts @ Pearl

We love books! We urge you to read them, enjoy them, learn from them... destroy them! Destroy them? Destroy that old book and make a craft out of it! (Please don't destroy our books; you'll be fined.)
At next week's craft night, we will be making a smaller version of the wreath shown above. And if you haven't already guessed, it's made out of book pages. Don't worry, you won't have to destroy any of your books; we already have some old ones you can use. We will meet from 6-7 p.m. Tuesday, June 12 at the Pearl Library. This program is free with all materials provided and open to the public. We'll see you there!
