Gallant Farm Book Club announces spring titles
Some great reading is ahead in the Gallant Farm Book Club. Anyone 14 and older can attend, and join in on the stimulating book discussion. The group meets most months on the last Wednesday, starting at 6:30 p.m., and focuses on books written during the 1930s or 1940s, or on topics pertinent to those eras or of interest to Gallant Farm visitors. Spring 2017 titles and dates are:
Mar. 22: How Green Was My Valley, by Richard Llewellyn. This 1939 novel recounts the changes within a Welsh family and the mining community in which they live.
Apr. 26: A Walk in the Woods, by Bill Bryson. The 1998 book is a humorous look at preparing for, and hiking the Appalachian Trail, which was completed in 1937.
May 31: The Contrary Farmer, by Gene Logsdon. This month, we are reading a contemporary work of non-fiction by an Ohio author and farmer. In the book, published in 1995, Logsdon correctly predicted the current trend toward smaller farming operations.
