Brown Bag Book Club will meet twice during the month of September. We will review the first half of the book on the 9th and the second half on the 23rd. Participants can bring a “brown bag” meal and desserts and drinks will be provided. This month we will be reading Because of Winn-Dixie. RSVP for this event above to receive the Zoom link via email.
Quick book description: The summer Opal and her father, the preacher, move to Naomi, Florida, Opal goes into the Winn-Dixie supermarket–and comes out with a dog. A big, ugly, suffering dog with a sterling sense of humor. A dog she dubs Winn-Dixie. Because of Winn-Dixie, the preacher tells Opal ten things about her absent mother, one for each year Opal has been alive. Opal spends all that sweet summer collecting stories about her new friends and thinking about her mother. But because of Winn-Dixie or perhaps because she has grown, Opal learns to let go, just a little, and that friendship–and forgiveness–can sneak up on you like a sudden summer storm.
