YOU DON’T NEED TO LEAVE TOWN TO FIND SOMETHING TO DO
Get cozy with a few good reads, Book clubs offer way to escape winter doldrums By GAY GRIESBACH
If you prefer history, mystery or romance to skiing, sledding or ice fishing, midwinter provides an excellent opportunity to hunker down and enjoy a book.. The Mill House Book Club meets at 1 p.m. on the third Wednesday of the month.
Jeanne Brandt-Lietzau said the club was started by members of the Richfield Historical Society, but like other clubs listed here, anyone is welcome to join. “There are no book groups in this area so we decided to start our own,” Brandt-Lietzau said.
And the book doesn’t need to be a book. Some members use e-readers or books-on-tape. “It’s a love of reading that brings us together, no matter what format it takes,” Brandt-Lietzau said. The club meets at The Nutman/Java Dancer, 1319 Highway 175, Richfield.
If you’re a quick reader, the next book, “Someone” by Alice McDermott, will be discussed at the Jan. 15 meeting. February’s book is “The Dog Stars” by Peter Heller, March is “And The Mountains Echoes” by Khalid Hussein and April’s selection is “Mary Coin” by Marisa Silver.
