For the month of August the Hearthstone Book Club will be reading:
The Lost Carousel of Provence by Juliett Blackwell
An artist lost to history, a family abandoned to its secrets, and the woman whose search for meaning unearths it all in a sweeping and expressive story from the New York Times bestselling author of Letters from Paris. Present day, San Francisco. During her free time, professional photographer Cady Drake shoots local carousels, a hobby inspired by a gift that transformed her childhood: a wooden rabbit supposedly created by master French carver Gustave Bayol a century ago. And when she's offered a freelance assignment for a book on the antique merry-go-rounds of Paris, Cady can't refuse the opportunity to visit the famous carousels for the first time.... 1900s, France. In a small town outside of Avignon, a husband and young wife struggle to keep up their ancestral chateau--and start the family they so desperately desire. For the children they hope to have, the Clements hire the famous Bayol to build a carousel, but as the carver and his apprentice work on the beautiful and whimsical creation, fate will entwine them all in unseen ways--for generations to come... Present day, Provence. As Cady's research leads her to the dilapidated Chateau Clement and its fabled carousel that was lost to the ravages of World War II, she will uncover a shocking truth in a set of one-hundred-year-old photographs that could guide her in reuniting a family torn apart by petty jealousies over several generations.

First Thursday of the month at the clubhouse 7PM to 9PM
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.
