‘Tis the season for the Lit Chicks Holiday Book Exchange! And that’s exactly what happened last Monday at the Junior League Headquarters where the Lit Chicks group discussed their most recent read, “All the Light We Cannot See”, which is a historical fiction novel that takes place during the Nazi occupation of Germany during WWII.
The Holiday gift exchange is a great way to pass along one of your favorite reads and keep the reading spirit alive. It was great to see all the excitement on the members of Lit Chicks faces as they opened their wrapped book.
Lit Chicks will be taking a break over the holidays, but will regroup in the New Year, so be sure to check out the next meeting date in Connections. The next book the group will be reading is, “Landline” by Rainbow Rowell.
Read below for the synopsis on Good Reads:
“Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble; it has been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems beside the point now.
Maybe that was always beside the point.
Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn’t expect him to pack up the kids and go home without her.
When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. If she’s ruined everything.
That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts…
Is that what she’s supposed to do?
Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?”
