Event Types :
Join the CHWB Book Club for the August Book Club selection, we will be reading and discussing “Late Migrations” by Margaret Renkl.

We’re excited to announce the CHWB Book Club is back!

A book club can have several goals at once, including the social aspect of getting together with others in a relaxed setting and the focused activity of discussing various elements of a particular book that everyone in the group has (mostly) read. A survey by BookBrowse of over 5,500 individuals engaged in book clubs across the country reported that survey responders highlighted both the value of discussion focused on the chosen book AND the social nature of the group. ,

Our CHWB Book Club facilitator Dr. Annette Kelly, an avid reader and founder and recently retired Board President of Neighbors Network, aims to help you do both!

For our August Book Club selection, we will be reading and discussing “Late Migrations” by Margaret Renkl. Published in 2019 and available in paperback, this beautifully written memoir combines  themes of family relationships and the natural world in which we all live.

Richard Powers, author of “The Overstory,” calls this book “a compact glory.” Author Ann Patchett calls “Late Migrations” “an examination of the quiet life” for which we often yearn.

In addition to this focused title discussion, we will have time for sharing recently read books… a great way to find your next read!!

Special Note: Participants are asked to borrow or purchase the featured book prior to the program’s start date. Book clubs work well when participants have read the book, but this is not a requirement. Being open to the opinions and reflections of others is important, as is staying on topic. Other elements of a “good” discussion: making room for everyone who wishes to speak, being attentive when others are speaking, not interrupting, or arguing, and encouraging less talkative members to join in.

This program is presented by Dr. Annette Kelly and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
