One thing to know about our book club
We are the Carillon Book Club of Plainfield. We've been a book club for 17 years, and our members are active seniors who enjoy stretching our minds and imaginations.
We meet once a month in our clubhouse. Our discussions last about an hour, and we select our books for the upcoming year in September.
"The Help" by Kathryn Stockett, "A Walk in the Woods" by Bill Bryson, "The Devil in the White City" by Erik Larson and "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.
We didn't love
"The Faith Club" by Ranya Idliby, Suzanne Oliver and Priscilla Warner; "Friends, Lovers, Chocolate" by Alexander McCall Smith or "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle" by David Wroblewski.
Films and field trips that tie in to the books we've read. We also serve treats that correspond to the books, like potato peel pie, a chocolate pie, peanuts, cotton candy and three tea bags (try to identify the books).
"The Girls Who Went Away" by Ann Fessler and "The Brutal Telling" by Louise Penny.
