Nonfiction Book Club

Our Nonfiction Book Club meets on the second Wednesday of each month. On Wednesday, November 14th at 11:30 am, we'll meet to discuss Julie Summers' Home Fires. Across Great Britain during World War II, ordinary women played a vital role in their country's war effort. They ran canteens and knitted garments for troops, collected herbs to replace medicines, and advised the government on issues ranging from evacuee housing to children's health. But they were best known for making jam from produce they grew on every available scrap of land, feeding a hungry nation with twelve million pounds of jam and preserves.
