The Three Bees Book Club (a.k.a The Bodacious Broads Book Club) is a group of 12 women who live in Carolina Preserve, an active adult community in western Cary, says club member Amy Hariton.
Tell us about your club. The group is fairly new, having been in existence for under 18 months. Our meetings occur once a month in our clubhouse on the last Monday of each month. Historical fiction, memoirs, and current fiction and non-fiction are among our favorites. We choose books by consensus and try to choose for four to six months. We take turns facilitating the book group and often do extra research on the author and sometimes show videos and interviews with the author. Sometimes we serve refreshments that mirror the theme or culture of the book that we are discussing. We also have read a book and then gone to see the movie about the book and then out to dinner.
What are you reading now? “Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End” by Atul Gawande
What is your club’s favorite book? “All the Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doerr
What’s unique about your club? We are all happy transplants from the Northeast or the Midwest. We have several retired reading teachers, English teachers, and school administrators among us, and we have all been voracious readers.
