Libby and her owner joined us, and Jan’s son, Nicholas.
It was a cool program, and those dogs got LOTS of petting!
We also enjoyed cookies that looked like dog biscuits from our friend, Michele.

Something rich and strange

Book Club’s selection for Monday,September 14th at 7:00 P.M. is
Something Rich and Strange by Ron Rash.
Come and join us.
For those unfamiliar with the beautiful and searing short stories of Ron Rash,
Something Rich and Strange is a generous, well-timed introduction.

Rash’s stories tell in crisp, gripping prose the emotional travails of life on the
Appalachian outback from Civil War days through the Great Depression,
the Vietnam War and encroaching modern urban plagues.
