Joe Friday's Dinner
Our first book of the year will be How to be a Victorian by Ruth Goodman. We will meet this month at Joe Friday's Diner in Mexia. We will pick the restaurant for next month before we leave!
With as many families that came and stayed for the reunions at the Confederate Reunion Grounds, you can imagine that some of them were readers! This book club is a chance for us to read some titles created during the Victorian Era, but also have some fun with books about that era.
