Last week, one of my book clubs met to discuss the book "Snow Falling on Cedars".
It was an older book, and I was kind of disappointed in the choice at first, but once I began to read, I fell in love with it.
That's the whole reason I belong to different book-clubs: to be exposed to different genre's of literature. It was a story of love, and small town life and prejudice and war. Set on an island off the coast of Seattle, Washington in the 1950's.
I am not a book reviewer...as I've said many times before, but I can talk about how wonderful our evening was. We had great discussion, which is always good, but one thing that also made the evening special was our host April. She made up a bunch of oriental appetizers. She had a book theme going on.....some of the characters in the book were Japanese and April had lived in Tokyo. She had just the right dishes and decor. Great ambiance.
While we eat, we discuss.
Check out her appetizer table!
And our next book is....
