April 2021

The April meeting of Wine and Words Book Club was held at Cindy’s home. It was our first in person meeting since February 2020. Attendees were Cindy, Kay, Linda, Karen, Jan and Sandie. Cindy provided delicious appetizers and wine. We sat outside under cover and it was warm and cozy with two infrared heaters keeping us warm.

We talked about what’s new in our lives and shared fun stories. Kay told us about the neighbors finding an old garbage dump in their yard when excavating for a new home.

Everyone enjoyed Lisette’s List to some degree. Sandie shared a link to the images and artwork referenced in the book. The two finger V expression has stood for Victory in Europe, peace and now for vaccination.

Kay is watching the Atlantic Crossing 8-part mini series on PBS. It is a story about the relationship between Franklin Roosevelt and the Norwegian Crown Princess Martha.

Sandie enjoyed the movie Nomadland, which won Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Director. It was recommended last year by Kay as a book we might enjoy reading. There was consensus we should read the book Nomadland, over the summer.

Next meeting is at Sandie’s Neptune Beach house at 4 pm. on May 25.

The book for May is Midnight Library
