October 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Fishing Creek Farm Book Club will have its next meeting on Wednesday, October 26, 2022 at 7:00 PM at the Clubhouse. We will be reading “Still Life” by Sarah Winman.

We have also selected the book we will read in November, “This is Happiness” by Neill Williams. We hope you enjoy both these books.

Goodreads writes about Still Life, Sarah Winman:

” Tuscany, 1944: As Allied troops advance and bombs fall around deserted villages, a young English soldier, Ulysses Temper, finds himself in the wine cellar of a deserted villa. There, he has a chance encounter with Evelyn Skinner, a middle-aged art historian who has come to Italy to salvage paintings from the ruins and recall long-forgotten memories of her own youth. In each other, Ulysses and Evelyn find a kindred spirit amongst the rubble of war-torn Italy, and set off on a course of events that will shape Ulysses’ life for the next four decades.

As Ulysses returns home to London, reimmersing himself in his crew at The Stoat and Parrot — a motley mix of pub crawlers and eccentrics — he carries his time in Italy with him. And when an unexpected inheritance brings him back to where it all began, Ulysses knows better than to tempt fate, and returns to the Tuscan hills.

With beautiful prose, extraordinary tenderness, and bursts of humor and light, Still Life is a sweeping portrait of unforgettable individuals who come together to make a family, and a richly drawn celebration of beauty and love in all its forms. ”

The FCF Book Club is open to all residents.  Please join us for our interesting discussions and to get to know many of your neighbors better.
