The Woman’s Club of Wilmette (WCW) will be holding its 50th Annual Book Review Series in May.
This year, the series includes three reviews. The first review will take place on May 2nd with a look at the book, "The Man in the Rockefeller Suit" (author, Mark Seal). Denise Philpot will be conducting the review of this stranger-than-fiction twist that documents the 30-year run of a con man.
The second book in the series is "P.S. I Still Hate It Here!", a collection of laugh-out-loud letters by kids about their wacky camp experiences. Diane Falanga, the book’s author and local Wilmette mom will leading the review on May 16th. At this review, guests will have the chance to purchase this newly published book from The Book Stall and have it signed by the author.
The third book review will take place on May 23rd and will be a survey by Suzanne Hales of "And Furthermore" (author, Judi Dench), a story of the actress’s childhood, adult life, and career.
Each review begins at 12pm, includes lunch, and costs $25. Reservations can be made by calling 847-256-2714 and are due the Friday before each event. (Reservations for the May 16th review may also be made by calling The Book Stall at 847-446-8880.)
A portion of the proceeds from the book reviews on May 2nd and May 23rd will benefit United Through Reading, whose mission is to facilitate a bonding experience of military families by reading together. The May 16th review proceeds will help benefit SCOPE-Midwest, an organization that helps underserved children attend non-profit camps.
