Fiction Book Club Talking Memoir

young.JPGIf someone can tell me where the month of February went, I would really appreciate it. I swear we went from January to a week of snow in February and then it was March. Good thing, of course, is that March is closer to June than is February, so I won’t complain too much. I just can’t keep up with the days anymore. Maybe this is a sign. Of what, I have no idea.

You know, too, what they always say about March: It’s a good month for book clubs (no, I don’t know who first said that — Ben Franklin?). And the River City Books fiction book club is all over it. At 7 p.m. tomorrow night (that’s Tuesday, March 6) the club will gather in RCB’s cozy downstairs meeting area to discuss When All the World was Young, a memoir by Barbara Holland. A publisher-produced blurb about this book: “Mixing tales of an autocratic stepfather, a brilliant, reclusive mother, and a houseful of siblings with jump-rope rhymes and dangerous sled runs, teachers both wise and weird, and a child’s-eye view of war, Holland gives readers a unique and sharp-eyed look at history and the world of childhood as it used to be.”

New members are always welcome. Whether or not you know what happened to February.
