We had a good turn out on Thursday night for our inaugural meeting of the Fireside Book Club. Sixteen people gathered in the back room to discuss our book selection process and introduce the first book club pick—The Grammarians by Cathleen Schine.
The Grammarians is the story of identical twins Laurel and Daphne Wolfe. The twins grow up equally obsessed by language, in particular the 2nd edition of Webster’s dictionary that their father brings home one day. As the story unfolds we watch them become distinctly different, both in terms of personality and in their relationships with the English language.
We will discuss The Grammarians at our next meeting on October 17th at 6 p.m.
