Our December book club pick is CHRISTMAS DAYS: 12 STORIES AND 12 FEASTS FOR 12 DAYS by Jeanette Winterson!
This book is full of stories that are funny and thought-provoking, traditional and innovative, “childlike and spooky” – exactly the kinds of tales you want to read during the winter holiday time! Though her theme is Christmas, we think this collection will appeal to those of any and/or no religion in their lives as well – there are mysteries, ghost stories, and romances here!
“Spooky, clever, funny, and poignant, Winterson’s supernatural tales refresh our appreciation of what it truly means to give, to love, and to share joy.” – Booklist
“Winterson has gathered 12 Yule-themed stories . . . She is especially good with the supernatural, using eerie and magical elements in ways that hark back to Poe and Dickens . . . Spooky, inventive, funny . . . [the book] has a 19th-century charm much needed in the grim 21st.” – Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Plus there are a bunch of delicious-sounding recipes as well!
Our meeting will take place on December 27th at 7PM ET.
