Hello Ocean Ridge friends and neighbors –
I hope you have had a wonderful summer of family, beach time, and also quiet reading time as well. We look forward to getting together once again and discuss some fascinating books.
Our first meeting this fall will be on Thursday night, September 21, 7:00 p.m. at the Plantation Club. Our September book is Pope Joan by Donna Woolfolk Cross. This book has been around for awhile, and is a fascinating and richly imagined work of fiction. The author makes an excellent and entertaining case that, in the Dark Ages, a woman sat on the papal throne for two years. The book is written as a fast moving tale, and with a wealth of rich historical detail. If you like books that you can’t put down, this one is certainly in that category.
If you have any questions about LitWits, please give me a call at 910-612-3685 (cell phone) or Mary Fitzgerald at 910-579-8971. We would love to have you join us each month. We meet the third Thursday evening of each month at the Plantation Club at 7:00 p.m.
Thank you – and we hope to see you in September.
