Beginning on October 6, 2009, at the Choctaw County Extension office in Ackerman, members of the Full Circle Knit/Crochet Group diversified into a book club by reading and discussing The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society!
As the participants would sit and knit and crochet items to give to people in need in Mississippi, discussions would arise about what books were currently being read. So, the decision was made to all read and discuss the same books once a month, taking turns in choosing the titles and moderating discussions.
What wonderful and often unpredictable discussions have occurred, building bonds through learning, listening, laughing and sharing our lives with each other. In ten years, members have read over 100 books, watched 10 classic movies (from books), once a year talked about personal favorites and one month writing autobiographies! The group has met at both the Extension Office and the Choctaw County Library, depending on the size of the anticipated crowd. On several occasions Mississippi authors were invited to come and share in the discussions, relating how they developed characters and wrote books, even changing the endings when necessary. Authors joined the group on seventeen occasions in person and two with the help of Skype.
Yarn Spinners, along with the Dixie Pan Club, will have the pleasure of celebrating the anniversary with a return author, Patricia Bradley, at the Choctaw County Library Tuesday, October 15 at 10:00, discussing the new release of Justice Delivered (4th in the Memphis Cold Cases).
From the Back Cover
"Compelling characters, southern flair, and shocking plot twists--Patricia Bradley delivers a gripping suspense."--Jessica R. Patch, author of the Security Specialists series
Carly Smith came by her trust issues honestly. She's been at the mercy of merciless men, ignored by law enforcement officers who should have helped her, and seemingly rejected by her family. She can't even trust herself to do the right thing. Though she is working hard on building a new life, the past continues to haunt her when she discovers that the man she couldn't bring herself to report to the police is still out there, luring vulnerable girls under the guise of being a modeling agent.
When her own niece is kidnapped, Carly must overcome her fears and come forward with the information she has. But if that proves to be too little, too late--she'll have to go after the perpetrators herself.
Patricia Bradley is the award-winning author of the Memphis Cold Case novels and the Logan Point series. She is an ACFW Carol Award finalist, and winner of an Inspirational Reader's Choice Award, a Daphne du Maurier Award, and a Touched by Love Award.
