Discussion:  Our Annual Morning with Local Authors

Now collecting donations for the Books for Children fund. DEADLINE for donations is Wednesday, December 2nd.
 

Due to COVID-19 concerns, we will continue to have a video conferencing discussion again.
Until then, happy reading....

The Lynnhaven Ladies Book Club meets

  1st Thursday of each month
  10:00 a.m.

  Churchill Street Recreation Center  
video conferencing

Come and join us at our next meeting and bring someone new with you. Remember, you do not have to have read the book or finished it to attend the monthly meeting. It's fun just hearing what others think about a particular book or author... and fun just being together and enjoying each other's company and our lively discussions.

We hope you will join us.  We can promise you... none of our discussions are boring.  For more information about the club, contact Peg Tabor (click on link to get Peg's email address or call 813-786-8764).

Our Annual Morning w/ Local Authors in December

Our Morning with Local Authors is an annual tradition that we all look forward to each year. This year, our local authors are (click on an author's book below to enlarge it):

  • Bill Pullen It Started at The Savoy: A memoir about family, celebrities and the highlights from a 52-year career in hotel management
  • Steve Burt The Bookseller's Daughter, Worst Joke Book series (Jokes for Kids), FreeK psychic teen series & others
  • Manijeh Badiozamani Family Tales from Tehran

  • Phyllis Kuehnl-Walters Become a Beacon of Life and Creating Balance & Purpose in Life

The meeting is usually followed by a Christmas/Holiday luncheon, but with COVID-19 cases and deaths continuing to increase here in Sumter and surrounding counties, few of us feel comfortable getting together as a group. In place of our annual book exchange, we'll do a virtual event. If you wish, send me an email (click on link for email address) with the...

  • Name & author of your favorite book,

  • Why you love it,

  • What you  hope others might get out of it.

I'll compile the responses and share them as Our Holiday Gift to Each Other. You don't have to be part of our Zoom meeting to participate. Peg usually gives everyone something as her gift to us at the luncheon, but this year she donated the amount she would have spent to our Books for Children fund. Thank you, Peg.

Hope we see you in December, even if just through Zoom....


Donations for Books for Children Being Accepted

DEADLINE for donations is Wednesday, December 2nd.

Ladies, we will begin to accept your donations for the Sumter County Pre-K Reading Program at any time. You may send your donations now or closer to the end of the year... or both!

Please send your checks made out to:

 Joyce Tisovec
 2427 Kingstree Place
 The Villages, FL 32162

Our last in-person gathering was in March and we have no plans to meet in person through November. December remains questionable at this time. 

As we know, it is so important to foster a love of reading early in life. Many of the children in Sumter County have minimal to no access to books, and our donations to our Books for Children fund helps provide books to youngsters who might not otherwise own a book of their own. Share your love of books in a tangible way!

Have a wonderful, and safe, month, until we meet again.
Peg


Things Book Lovers Do

Sue Laluk got a kick out of a Hedger Humor cartoon that she shared. Peg thought you'd enjoy them, as well. (Click on each image to enlarge it.)  Do you do any of these things? You must be a book lover.
