St. James Book ClubbookClub

The St. James Book Club January meeting will be January 20, at 3:00 p.m. in the Parlor. “The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid“, Bill Bryson’s memoir of growing up in the 1950s, will be the subject of this month’s discussion. Beloved writer Bill Bryson, whose mother was the home-style editor of their hometown Iowa newspaper, and father who was the sports writer, humorously covers all aspects of life in the 1950s.
Come join us for some lively discussion.

Happy Reading!
