Book Club

BEST OF BOOKS BOOK CLUB:

The Best of Books Book Club meets the last Monday of every month from 7 to 8 p.m. at BOB, 1313 E Danforth Road in Edmond, OK.

The club, led by Carol Casey, now has at least 45 members. Carol, a retired media director and archivist, has facilitated the group for nearly 15 years. Members of the club since its beginning include Marsha Zweibel and Marcia Allen. Members love the club so much that they even stay with it after moving to another state; Marcia now lives in Colorado!

Books discussed range from classics to biographies to current bestsellers.

The club also serves as the host at BOB for special presentations from noted authors. For example, national Agatha Christie Award-winning mystery writer Carolyn Hart has spoken to the group in the past. Kent Frates, author of “Oklahoma’s Most Notorious Cases,” a LOCAL BESTSELLER, also presented to the group in March 2016.

Some books that have been read in the past are as follows:

  • December 2015/January 2016: Winter of the World, by Ken Follett.

  • February 2016: Under the Wide and Starry Skies, by Nancy Horan.

  • March 2016: The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry, by Gabrielle Zevin.

  • April 2016: The Lowland, by Jhumpi Lahin.
