Wimbledon Readers: Book Club

March 26, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

secret life of Bees

6.30PM – 8.00PM

The name of our book club is Wimbledon Readers and we have been running since 2009. We are always happy to welcome new, friendly people to our group, we are a mixed group of different ages brought together once a month by our love of reading!

Our March meeting at “The Hand in Hand” is on Monday 26th March from 6.40pm to 8pm when we will be discussing “The Secret Life of Bees” by Sue Monk Kidd. Please arrive at 6.30pm so that you have enough time to buy your drinks before we start. Here is a bit about the book:

“Lily has grown up believing she accidentally killed her mother when she was four. She not only has her own memory of holding the gun, but her father’s account of the event. Now fourteen, she yearns for her mother, and for forgiveness. Living on a peach farm in South Carolina with her father, she has only one friend: Rosaleen, a black servant whose sharp exterior hides a tender heart. South Carolina in the sixties is a place where segregation is still considered a cause worth fighting for.
When racial tension explodes one summer afternoon, and Rosaleen is arrested and beaten, Lily is compelled to act. Fugitives from justice and from Lily’s harsh and unyielding father, they follow a trail left by the woman who died ten years before”.
