The Help – Book Club Report

It was unanimous. All of the Lit Ladies Book Club members LOVED The Help, by Kathryn Stockett.  Any complaints? Well,  yes. We all wanted more. We became so attached to Skeeter, Minny, Aibeleen, etc that we would love the story to carry on. She brought each character to a satisfying conclusion, but like life, the story wouldn’t end there.  Doubtful we’ll get our wishes granted.

For May we’ve selected the The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society: “The letters comprising this small charming novel begin in 1946, when single, 30-something author Juliet Ashton (nom de plume Izzy Bickerstaff) writes to her publisher to say she is tired of covering the sunny side of war and its aftermath. When Guernsey farmer Dawsey Adams finds Juliet’s name in a used book and invites articulate—and not-so-articulate—neighbors to write Juliet with their stories, the book’s epistolary circle widens, putting Juliet back in the path of war stories.”   I’ve been wanting to read this one for a long time. Yay!  But first, I must finish The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest.
