Book Bites Club starts Jan. 24

Is it your New Yearís resolution to read a new book or meet new people? You can do both at the Book Bites Book Club at South Rowan Regional Library in China Grove. The club meets the last Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m.
Members choose all the books, and a new title is read and discussed each month. And if you like food, this is the book club for you. Members take turns bringing light refreshments that are tied in with the bookís theme. For example when reading ěMountains Between Us,î a story of a plane wreck and survival in the mountains, the group snacked on trail mix and beef jerky just like the characters in the book.
Join us beginning Tuesday, Jan. 24, when we discuss ěSpell of the Highlanderî by Karen Marie Moning. New members are always welcome. Upcoming book selections include:
Feb 28: ěMemory Keeperís Daughterî by Kim Edwards.
March 27: ěMoon Womenî by Pamela Duncan.
April 29: ěFried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop CafČî by Fannie Flagg.
May 29: ěGarden Spells,î by Sarah Addison Allen.
June 26: ěLife of Piî by Yan Martel.
July 3: ěEnderís Gameî by Orson Scott Card.
For more information please call Sara at 704-216-8229, or join the club on Jan. 24 at the South Rowan Regional Library.
