PC Reads celebrates one year anniversary

Shannon Tyree

On Thursday, June 7 PC Reads held its 12th session and celebrated with a party to mark the completion of the first year of PebbleCreek’s “drop-in” book club.

“When we started, we weren’t sure how the program would work out,” said Susie Nee, the originator and coordinator of the program. “Now we know that it fills several specific needs, including a book club for people new to PebbleCreek and those who live here only part time.”

PC Reads begins its second year Thursday, July 5 from 5:00-6:30 p.m., when Beneath a Scarlet Sky by Mark Sullivan is reviewed and discussed. Beneath a Scarlet Sky is based on the true story of a forgotten hero, an epic take of one young man’s incredible courage and resilience during one of history’s darkest hours. Did you read All the Light We Cannot See, The Nightingale, or Unbroken? Then you might also enjoy this story.

Want to read ahead for August? On Thursday, August 2, PC Reads will discuss Last Bus to Wisdom: A Novel by Ivan Doig, the last book written by the popular American author who died in 2005.
