BookTalk at BSC 2012

Good news!  We received word from the BSC Foundation that our BookTalk at BSC 2012 grant request was funded!

We are working on the final plans, but here’s a preview to whet your appetite:

Our theme, The Only Thing that Lasts, was inspired (in part) by this line from Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind:

“Do you mean to tell me, Katie Scarlett O’Hara, that Tara, that land doesn’t mean anything to you? Why, land is the only thing in the world worth workin’ for, worth fightin’ for, worth dyin’ for, because it’s the only thing that lasts.” — Gerald O’Hara

The Books

BookTalk discussions will be held in the BSC Library from 1-3 p.m.  Discussions are free and open to all.

Stay tuned for more details … In the meantime, start reading.
