Our June book is:
I Still Dream About You
by Fannie Flagg
Set in Birmingham, Alabama, the story centers on a former Miss Alabama who decides to end her life rather than continue living an unfulfilling existence, and her friendships with idiosyncratic colleagues in a local real estate agency. The novel takes a light tone in describing the main character's failed attempts to kill herself, and provides a vivid look at Birmingham's history, its role in the civil rights movement, and typical Southern mores
Opportunities for Involvement!
During COVID-19, all meetings are virtual.
