Book chosen for Morenci discussion 5.13.09

Written by David Green.

“Friday Night Knitting Club” by Kate Jacobs was chosen as the next selection of the book discussion group at Stair Public Library. The discussion begins at 7 p.m. Monday, May 18.

Georgia Walker is a single mom and successful New York City entrepreneur whose yarn shop, Walker and Daughter, has become something of a mecca for knitters of all skill levels and dispositions. What begins as a disorganized Friday night gathering of her most loyal customers turns into a regular meeting of minds and hearts, as each woman discovers there's much more to be found than tips on knitting technique.

Just when business is looking up, the father of Georgia’s daughter and a long-forgotten nemesis suddenly resurface and Georgia’s orderly world falls to pieces. Soon she learns that she isn’t the only Friday Night Knitting Club member who sees the meetings as the only constant in life.

The book discussion is open to the public. Participants are invited to join in the talk or sit and listen to others review the book.

Extra copies of the book are available at the library.
