For the uninitiated, the Women and Wine Book Club is our monthly meeting of some of the most fun ladies in Walla Walla. They get together, talk, eat delicious food, and discuss the monthly selection. It’s the perfect place to meet new friends, get wonderful suggestions for books, and, of course, have a glass of Walla Faces wine!
The book club meets on the third Tuesday of every month. The $25 fee includes the book of the month, a glass of wine, light snacks and great company.
This month, we are reading the Book of Ebenezer Le Page, a novel by Gerald Basil Edwards. This fictionalized autobiography follows Ebenezer Le Page as he lives out his life on the small island of Guernsey. Although the book was rejected by publishers repeatedly during the author’s lifetime, it was posthumously published to critical acclaim. William Golding, author of Lord of the Flies, said, “To read it is not like reading but living.” Its compelling voice makes it the perfect choice for the August book club.
To join the book club, simply drop by the Tasting Room to grab a copy and reserve your seat. We are discussing the book on Tuesday, August 21, so there is still time to grab a copy and read it before the Women and Wine Book Club meets.
The icing on the cake? The books are purchased from Book & Game, a locally owned, independent bookstore. That means that attending the Walla Faces book club is the perfect way to support two local businesses in one step!
