“We’re going to help organize a club – a woman’s literary club.”…”We’re going to meet around at each other’s houses and tell each other what we think of Shakespeare and Milton.”…”And it is to be purely literary, mamma. All controversial subjects barred.”
1869 – “The first year of the Club’s existence was a momentous one in the lives of several of its members.”
1873-1874 – “For the only time in its history, members of our Club were arraigned in police court.”
1875 – ” The organization of a subscription library…”
This is the story of a book club in Waynesboro where a group of ladies describes their readings and their lives in the period of 1868 up to 1932.
Since the book has too many characters is not an easy task to keep track of all of them.
A vivid portrait of the American life in such period of history.
