New Book Club Celebrates The Best of Mississippi

New Book Club Celebrates The Best of Mississippi

Conversations Book Club, in connection with Appetizers Restauratn in Pearl, MS, is pleased to announce the formation of the Best of Mississippi Book Club.

"This is our way of celebrating the state's literary stars as well as those that are on the rise," says book club founder and President Cyrus Webb of Brandon, MS. "I think the selections are varied enough that Mississippians of all ages and interests will find something they can enjoy and share." Webb also hopes that this will be yet another way that reading can be encouraged throughout the state since it is still has one of the highest illiteracy rates in the country.

The book club will meet every fourth Thursday at Appetizers Restaurant (3000 Hwy 80 E) at 6p.m. each month for a 90 min. discussion about that month's selection. The first meeting is set for Thursday, March 24, 2011 with the book A TIME TO KILL by John Grisham. Webb will lead the conversation, and the book club is free and open to anyone who would like to attend and/or participate.

The Best of Mississippi Book Club will also discuss the following titles:
•April 2011 --- "Way Beyond Pisgah" by Alean McIntyre Adams
•May 2011 --- "The Quiet Game" by Greg Iles
•June 2011 --- "Caught In The Middle" by Jennifer Luckett
