Friday I spoke to a book club in my hometown of Anderson, South Carolina. It was a great group and a very well-established one—it had been founded in 1920. My grandmother had been among the early members.
In the past five years or so, I’ve spoken to a variety of different kinds of book clubs. Some have been very casual with a loosely-organized program. Some have been dressy, organized events. Some have been at retirement homes. Sometimes there’s even supper involved. I’ve found that it’s good to know what to expect before you arrive.
