We’re back in Florida again after a delicious visit to England last month. Dorothy Connor had sherry trifle, and there were lots of other elegant and tasty goodies to accompany the setting of our book.
We will have munchies and wine, and even if you haven’t read the book, you are welcome to come. Just RSVP to the website or to Carol. Her address is 2340 Armour Drive, Dunedin. Directions will be on the website if you need them.
About the book:
Originally published in 1942, Cross Creek has become a classic in modern American literature. For the millions of readers raised on The Yearling, here is the story of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings’s experiences in the remote Florida hamlet of Cross Creek, where she lived for thirteen years. From the daily labors of managing a seventy-two-acre orange grove to bouts with runaway pigs and a succession of unruly farmhands, Rawlings describes her life at the Creek with humor and spirit. Her tireless determination to overcome the challenges of her adopted home in the Florida backcountry, her deep-rooted love of the earth, and her genius for character and description result in a most delightful and heartwarming memoir.
On April 10, the second Wednesday in April: Infidel, by Ayaan Hirsi Al, at Sharon Grimshaw’s in Crystal Beach
