By Karen England, for Let's Talk Plants! December 2021.
The next SD Hort Book Club meeting is on Zoom, on December 6th, at 4:30 pm for Happy Half Hour and 5 pm for the Book Club proper. We are reading Suzanne Simard’s book Finding the Mother Tree.
At the recent coffeeless “Coffee In The Garden” at my home in Vista, CA, I spread the majority of the books that we are currently in the throes of voting on for the next quarter’s readings onto my conference table in the barn for all the bookies to see and I had a signup sheet for anyone who wished to join us and, guess what? Five people have joined our little reading group. Isn’t that great?
Please join me in welcoming Mimi M., Georgia K., Marlene Z., Helen G., and Ronee K. to the book club.
We now number 28 regular members plus some irregular members who come and go as their schedules allow and as the books interest them. The Zoom link to the meeting will be emailed to all the members.
If you haven’t voted yet on the list below please do so as soon as possible. Send your three top choices from the list to me firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that the previous list published did not include The Multifarious Mr. Banks by Toby Musgraves, it was cut off the list accidentally. If you have already voted and this addition changes your vote just email me your corrected vote.
VOTING ENDS DECEMBER 5.
At the upcoming book club meeting on Dec. 6, we will discuss the schedule for the next four months.
