The Book Club ladies had an enjoyable evening at our new venue, The Three Crowns.
We discussed Becoming by Michelle Obama, another of the reading sets donated by the Chippenham Borough Lands. It was a fascinating and gracious insight into how a strong family background and education can help achieve the American Dream, against all the odds. Surprisingly Michelle Obama admits politics isn't really her thing and it took quite a lot of persuasion for her to agree to Barack Obama running for president.
This was the the most popular book we've read in a long time. It scored 8.5 out of 10.
Our next book is Old Baggage by Lissa Evans.
