Daytime Book Club for Men and Women – meets the third Thursday of each month from 10am until noon.
Thursday, April 15 at 10am via Zoom
 In April the Thursday Morning Book Club will read Lynda Rutledge’s West With Giraffes. Based on a true story that took place in 1938, during The Great Depression. Two giraffes, that survived a hurricane in the Atlantic, must be moved  from New York to the San Diego Zoo. This is a remarkable read that encompasses a love story and a coming of age story, as well as a view of how humans can be changed by the grace of animals, and a rollicking adventure about a young man and an older man  transporting the giraffes to their destination before it’s too late.
