"The Vashishing Half” by Brit Bennett
The Vignes twin sisters will always be identical. But after growing up together in a small,
southern black community and running away at age sixteen, it's not just the shape of their daily
lives that is different as adults, it's everything: their families, their communities, their racial
identities. Many years later, one sister lives with her black daughter in the same southern town
she once tried to escape. The other secretly passes for white, and her white husband knows
nothing of her past. Still, even separated by so many miles and just as many lies, the fates of
the twins remain intertwined. What will happen to the next generation, when their own daughters' storylines intersect?
Weaving together multiple strands and generations of this family, from the Deep South to California, from the 1950s to the 1990s, Brit Bennett produces a story that is at once a riveting, emotional family story and a brilliant exploration of the American history of passing. Looking well beyond issues of race, The Vanishing Half considers the lasting influence of the past as it shapes a person's decisions, desires, and expectations, and explores some of the multiple reasons and realms in which people sometimes feel pulled to live as something other than their origins.
Due to the Corona Virus all Activities and meetings are cancelled until further notice.

Book Club Meets - The purpose to the club is to enlighten our members and get them out of their "comfort zone" with their "normal" type of book they read. You'd be surprised how many other types of books you may like. Join us for stimulating discussion about a new book every month. The group, led by Joan Ebersbach, discusses the book we've read during the last month and chooses a new book for the following month.
Second Saturday of the month at the clubhouse 6PM to ??
Residents get together here in the clubhouse to socialize for fun. It's also a way to celebrate anyone having a birthday that month. Everyone is welcomed HOWEVER the only rule is that each individual must bring what they are to drink and each individual must bring what they are to snack on (dessert, snacks, appetizers, crock pot surprises, etc.). As always it is always nice to bring extra to share .... Whatever is brought in must be brought out. Donating extra paper goods is always appreciated.
