Not Just About A Book Club reads "The Secret Life of Bees"


“Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.” Mason Cooley
I was thinking how books have helped so many of us "getaway" from our lives in quarantine. Today my book club met to discuss Sue Monk Kidd's book "The Secret Life of Bees". It was published several years ago and a few of the club members read it for a second time. It's worthy of a repeated read. In the story a "Black Madonna" statue plays an important role in the lives of the central characters. In googling Black Madonna's we learn that there are many scattered throughout the world. Pictured below is one such Madonna "Our Lady of Czestochowa" in Poland. We enjoyed this book and recommend it. 

“Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.” Anna Quindlen
Here's us with our homage to book club member "Lynda"

Sorry to have missed but crazy day and I wasn't able to make it on time. The Secret Lives of Bee's was really good read and I truly loved the movie even more. Your pictures were great and glad to make such an impression on my friends that they want to copy me! See you all
