This is our chance to discuss The Persian Pickle Club by Sandra Dallas - the very first book selection of the Quilters' Book Club. These questions are from the author's website:
The Denver Post called this "A book about how times can never be so hard that they can't be eased when people come together." How do the gatherings of the Persian Pickle Club ease its members' troubles?
In The Persian Pickle Club, Queenie says, “It was marrying that made women appreciate other women.” Grover is a nice man who listens to Queenie’s fears and shares his own. What do the women characters provide each other?
There are no right or wrong answers. We come from many different locations and are of different generations - so I'm expecting some differences of opinion! It wouldn't be much of a discussion if we all feel exactly the same way. One reason for being in a book club is to hear ideas other than your own and stretch your mind a bit. Having said this, it is also important to be respectful of each other's opinions.
I would urge you not to be a lurker. Enter into the discussion. We'd love to hear your ideas and thoughts on the book.
A reminder - If you receive my blog posts via email, you will need to click through to my blog to be able to see comments and to respond yourself.
Another reminder - When you comment, you will need to select a profile in order for your comment to show up. This is to block spammers from taking over. I originally set it up so that you could comment as "Anonymous," but I ended up with so many spam comments that I couldn't stand it. You may have seen some very strange comments until I was able to delete them! They were coming every two minutes one morning. It takes only a few moments to create a Google or some other account.
Two more questions tomorrow!
